A soldier from Nova Scotia died Tuesday after being accidentally shot while in his tent at the military base in Kandahar, Afghanistan, CBC News has confirmed. The soldier, Cpl. Kevin Megeney, was shot in the chest, the family told CBC News on Tuesday.
The Defence Department would only confirm that Megeney died of a gunshot wound shortly after 7 p.m. local time. "Enemy action has been ruled out, since the incident occurred within the secure confines of Kandahar airfield."
