A security guard is hospitalized in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago, after accidentally discharging his weapon and shooting off his own penis.
The Trinidad and Tobago Guardian reports that the unnamed 33-year-old man was carrying a .38 caliber handgun in his pocket. It went off, hitting him in the groin.
Police received calls of a gunshot coming from a parked car and responded to the scene found the driver slumped at the wheel and bleeding from the injured area.
The wounded man was taken to San Fernando General Hospital.
Authorities ran a trace on him and found that he did not possess a license for the gun he was carrying; he remains under guard by law enforcement officials.
He faces charges of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Unfortunately, these accidents are not uncommon. Accidental gunshot wounds to the penis and testicles were reported in Florida, Arizona and Washington in 2012.
