In a bizarre incident, a young Russian woman accidentally shot herself in the head with a pistol while posing for a selfie, reports Hindustan Times.
The 21-year-old found a 9mm handgun left behind by a security guard at her Moscow office and decided to pose for a photograph holding it. While taking a selfie with one hand, she accidentally pressed the gun’s trigger, shooting herself in the temple at close range.
The victim was in a “serious condition” on Friday. Police are investigating how the woman, who was an office worker, got hold of the gun.
US investigators in February said a pilot’s repeated snapping of selfie photos caused a small plane to crash, killing both people on board.
