Boy, 6, dead, after accidentally shot by his cousin in Pangasinan


PANGASINAN — While playing at their home in Umingan, Pangasinan, a six-year-old kid was accidentally shot dead by his 13-year-old cousin.

According to a report on GMA Regional TV News on Friday by Russel Simorio, the tragedy occurred inside their home in Barangay Don Montano.

During the police investigation, the two were playing and the 13-year-old lad saw the gun above the cabinet.

“Kinalabit ng bata, accidentally tinamaan yung kaniyang pinsan. Na-shock daw yung pinsan niya na nakabaril. So ni-report daw niya ito sa mama niya, halos hindi nga siya makapagsalita,” according to Police Lieutenant Socorro Arciaga, Deputy Chief of Umingan Police Station.

The young man allegedly thought that the gun that belonged to the victim’s father, who had passed away, was just a toy.

The victim was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival.

The parents handed over their young son and took him to the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office.

The young man allegedly suffered trauma and could hardly speak due to the tragedy.

Police are still trying to get the statement from the victim’s family and the teenager’s family, according to the report.

To prevent similar incidents, authorities advised the public to inform them if there are loose firearms in their homes.
