A 22 year old Spanish man has suffered significant damage to
his genitals as a result accidently firing a gun that he was handling.
The wounded man, who has a police record for various crimes, was transferred to Elda hospital by his relatives where surgeons tried to reconstruct his penis in an operation that lasted for four hours.
He was very lucky because the bullet did not hit his lower abdomen, otherwise he could have bled out in a matter of minutes.
The facts are being investigated by the team of the Judicial Police because the victim did not hold a weapons permit nor has he handed over the pistol.
In any case, the agents arrested him and one of his friends, as alleged perpetrators of a crime of illegal possession of weapons. For its part, the Investigating Court in Novelda has decreed provisional release for both, with charges, until the trial is held .
Shouldn’t have been so cocky should he?
