A 21-year old woman in Moscow, Russia is currently in ‘serious condition’ after accidentally shooting herself in the head while taking a selfie with a handgun left in her workplace.
According to RIA Novosti, police sources believe that a security guard in the woman’s workplace had left the 9 mm pistol at work before going on holiday two weeks ago. It is still unclear how she found the gun.
Police say the owner of the gun may face up to 6 months in prison for negligence in storing firearms, resulting in ‘grave consequences.’
The woman is now in intensive care at the Sklifosovsky Institute in Moscow.
