15-year-old in hospital after injuring himself with father’s gun

A 15-year-old is being treated at a private clinic in Nicosia, it emerged on Tuesday, after he was injured the day before while playing with his father’s flobert rifle, which fell to the ground and went off.

The bullet injured the 15-year-old from Peristerona on the right wrist and in the abdomen area, though the minor’s condition is not life-threatening.

According to the police, information was received on Monday at around 6pm that a minor was transferred to a Nicosia private clinic.

Searching the 15-year-old’s home, police concluded that the minor was injured when the hunting gun, registered in his father’s name, fell from the boy’s hands, after which it fired.
