New York, Aug 4 (IANS) This is one thing you must never try to attempt to impress friends on Facebook – to pose with a loaded gun.
A Mexican veterinary doctor’s search for an impressive profile picture turned tragic when he shot himself in the head and died on the way to hospital, Mirror reported.
Oscar Otero Aguilar, 21, had several pictures posted on his Facebook page posing in front of fast cars, sitting on expensive motorbikes, hugging beautiful women and even posing in a musical band.
His craze turned tragic when Aguilar decided to take some pictures as he waved around a borrowed gun.
The loaded gun went off in his hand, injuring him seriously.
“I heard a gunshot, and then I heard somebody screaming and realised somebody had been hurt. I called the police straight away and when they arrived they found that he was still alive,” Aguilar’s neighbour Manfredo Paez, 57, was quoted as saying.
The young man died on the way to hospital.
Police questioned those who were in his flat when the accident happened.
They told that Aguilar had been messing around with the loaded gun and taking pictures when it accidentally went off.
