Woman shoots herself in face reloading rifle
A WOMAN who shot herself in the face with an air rifle was lucky to escape serious injury but the man she was with now faces a fine for an unlicensed firearm.
Just after 5.30pm yesterday a man and woman were shooting targets in their backyard in Leanne Court, Greenbank.
As the woman was reloading the weapon it discharged a pellet which grazed her cheek.
Police said the injury was not serious but could have been much more dangerous if it had hit her eye.
``They don't usually penetrate the skin but if it had hit a vital area like an eye, it could have been more serious,'' said Regional Duty Officer Inspector David Lacey.
When police attended they discovered the gun was unlicensed and the man was issued a notice to appear in court for possessing an unlicensed firearm.
``People really need to look into their sheds for these weapons, and license them or hand them into police,'' said Insp Lacey.
How would licensing the gun have made any difference?
