Parenting 101... failed
Some people just aren’t meant to be parents, and this couple is a perfect example of that dangerous lack of responsibility. Unfortunately, it’s never that hard to find these types of people because they do things like this and end up in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Not only did this couple make a terrible mistake, but it wasn’t even their child.
Amy Allen and her two-year-old son Harry were at her friend Emma Horseman’s house when the incident went down.
At one point, Harry started crying, and Emma told her fiancé Jordan to shoot the child to “shut him up.” Before Amy could even process what in the world she just heard, the gun was fired.
The gun was an air-rifle similar to the ones pictured here, so while it wasn’t loaded with bullets, it was still filled with pellets. When you think about it, there’s absolutely no reason that this situation should have even come close to happening. Even as a joke, no one in their right mind should ever be pointing a fully functional gun of any kind at anyone, let alone a toddler.
What were they thinking?
The gun was fired directly at little Harry and the pellet penetrated his head. Harry quickly fell over and started bleeding; he was quickly rushed to the emergency room where it was discovered that he had a skull fracture and was bleeding from his brain. Harry survived but now has to suffer with post-traumatic seizures and weakness in his left arm all because of an idiotic decision.
Here’s what’s happening to the couple now…
