Man Tries To Scare Hiccups Out Of Nephew, Kills Him
Uncle Commits Suicide After Realizing What He Did

POSTED: 6:48 am CST January 25, 2006

BOGOTA, Colombia -- A Colombian man who tried to startle his nephew from a bout of the hiccups by pointing a gun at him accidentally pulled the trigger and killed him.

Police in the northern city of Barranquilla said the distraught uncle then ran out of the house and down the street a few yards before stopping and shooting himself. He died from a gunshot wound in the head.

According to police, the incident occurred Sunday night after the two men had been drinking.

And that's an unusual excuse for killing someone.

No, seriously, poor guys. Unfortunate isnt the word.

me too.

I feel even worse for thinking that some bloodlines remove themselves from the gene pool.


We used to say "serious drinkers don't hunt, and serious hunters don't drink." I think it applies to firearm possession generally.
