Boy Applies Lighter to Dad's Hunting Ammo
According to the Grand Rapids Press, for reasons most likely only known to him, a Michigan boy found one of his father's 30-06 cartridges and decided to apply an open flame to it. Unsurprisingly the round exploded and luckily the boy escaped serious injury.
The cartridge exploded and drove a casing piece into his neck, but the injury is not life threatening, according to Ottawa County Sheriff's Sgt. Brian Buter. "He had no intent of harming himself or others. He acted carelessly," Buter said in issuing the overnight police report about the incident.
