Toddler accidentally shoots parents

The incident took place in a motel room on Saturday afternoon in Albuquerque in the state of New Mexico.

The toddler was apparently reaching for an iPod.

The bullet passed through his father’s buttock and hit his mother, who is eight months pregnant, in the arm. Both parents are said to be recovering.

The boy’s two-year-old sister, who was also in the room at the America’s Best Value Inn, was unhurt.

Justin Reynolds told NBC News station KOB he and his girlfriend Monique Villescas were about to order a pizza when he heard the shot.

“The next minute I realised my girlfriend was bleeding. Then I sat down and realised I was shot too.”

He called emergency services and tried to staunch Ms Villescas’s bleeding with towels.

He said: “I was more worried about my girlfriend than myself and anything else that was going on. And my son because I didn’t know if he had shot himself or not. He was shocked and crying. It was traumatising.”

Mr Reynolds has been released from hospital and Ms Villescas is in a stable condition.

Albuquerque police said the district attorney’s office would decide whether the parents would face negligence charges. The children have been taken into care.

Mother shot dead by her toddler son as she changes her one-year-old daughter’s nappy

A young mother was accidentally shot dead by her three-year-old son as she changed her one-year-old daughter’s nappy.

The “horrible, horrible accident,” happened when the toddler found the loaded semi-automatic handgun and fired a shot, hitting 26-year-old Christa Engles in the head at her home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Her mother and husband also live at the house in Tulsa, but neither was home at the time.

Engles’ husband, a truck driver who was on the road, arrived home Tuesday evening after hearing about the shooting and was only able to confirm his wife’s death by repeatedly calling the hospital.


Ugandan toddler survives ordeal

The two year-old is seen terribly tortured by a maid who has been  identified as Jolly Tumuhiirwe, 22, a born of Rukungiri Districta in Uganda. The child’s  father is known as Erick Kamanzi, a loaded staff at a reputable NGO in Kampala.

The video captured on cameras early last week at Kamanzi’s home of Naalya, reveal a shocking story where Tumuhiirwe  the nanny is trying to feed the baby who was said to be sick at the time, exhibits difficulty in coping with the rough and speedy rate at which she is fed.

The baby then throws up after a while as she could not contain the stuffed food in her throat and that is when the violence begins. The nanny slaps her so hard its throws her down from the sofa to the floor.

As she lies down crying the nanny walks up to her and hits her with a torch as she clobbered her severely.

She clearly wasn’t done with the child, she then starts kicking her and stepping on her back in turns. She finally gave her the last kick which sent her silent and unable to move and then picked her like by  hand and vanishes in the next room.

According to family sources, Kamanzi last week came home and found some bruises on the baby’s hind. He did not ask what happened but he hastily went to review the cameras which, he had taken long to monitor. This was last Saturday November 15th 2014.

What he saw enraged him to the marrow and he  pounced on Tumuhiirwe and clobbered her to pulp. Done with it, he turned to tend to the baby as Tumuhiirwe ran to police where, she reported an assault case against her Master Kamanzi.

The Kiwatule police swung into action, raided Kamanzi’s home and arrested him. He promptly confessed to the charge before he was dragged to cells. After cooling down,he asked the Cops to look at what made him clobber the maid. A mere look at the video changed the police stance and released Kamanzi.

Speaking to the investigator on Sunday, police chief spokesman CP Fred Enanga confirmed that Tumuhiirwe’s case had been taken over by the events. Reading the file number as CRB 1346/14 of Kiira Road, Enanga said Tumuhiirwe was yesterday charged under Anti-torture Act at Nakawa Court.

But Enanga hastily adds that police are contemplating on revising the charge and upgrade it to attempted murder. He said the Tumuhiirwe will re-appear in Court on December 8th 2014. Efforts to get hints on the baby’s mother were futile as family sources maintained silence on the question.
