A 3-year-old Tennessee boy is being called "the luckiest kid on earth" after miraculously surviving shooting himself in the head Saturday night when a family member left a loaded firearm on a bathroom counter.She was another lawful gun owner who turned out to be absolutely unfit to own a gun safely. She probably had a concealed carry permit.
The shooting happened after the toddler’s aunt and mother returned from a shopping trip.
His aunt told police she had to use the bathroom, so she removed her .380 handgun and placed it on the countertop. She apparently forgot about the firearm when her son began to act up and exited the bathroom.
The 3-year-old's older sister then entered to draw a bath for him. While she was filling the tub, the toddler grabbed the gun and shot himself in the head.
His sister told investigators she saw her little brother play with the firearm, but thought it was one of his toy guns.
Detectives say the bullet passed through the child's skull and exited.
