Man Shoots Himself During Web Chat

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/847...uring-web-chat

Im surprised this hasnt been posted yet - the story or the pics of when he shot himself

Quote:
Police have ruled that a US teen who shot himself while posing with a gun during a live video chat did not commit suicide.

Chat room members from Australia, the US, Canada and the Netherlands saw Nebraska man Trevor George, 19, pull out a revolver, hold it to his head and fire, 6News reports.

His last words were reported to be "help me", according to archived chats after the event.

Users witnessing the shooting initially doubted Mr George had actually shot himself, but were unable to contact emergency services because nobody knew his real name or whereabouts.

The next morning a user from Florida who knew Mr George's name called police, but it was too late to help the already dead teen.

Police have decided that Mr George did not intend to kill himself and was likely unaware the gun was loaded.

The young man had reportedly done something similar in a chat room before but the gun was not loaded.

Reviewing transcripts of the chat room conversation in March and speaking to every chat room member, police also ruled that he was not coerced into firing the gun.

* Readers seeking support and information about suicide prevention can contact Lifeline on 13 11 14.

Yeah, it's a poorly written article but he is dead. It wasn't ruled a suicide because they think he didn't intend to kill himself, he was doing it as joke but was to stupid to empty the gun first. It would be like the people who shoot themselves while they're cleaning their gun.

How can u go on a chat room and ask for help, but a gun to your own head and pull the trigger. But still not call it a suicide. Fucking idiots.

Re: Man Shoots Himself During Web Chat

Simple really. You don't play with guns especially if they are loaded (all guns should be treated as such) and you NEVER aim it at yourself. Bad things tend to happen. But if your going to do it anyway, you might as well broadcast your idiocy across the internet in front of a live audience.
