article imageTrinidad & Tobago security guard shoots his penis off

A security guard in Trinidad and Tobago has been hospitalized after accidentally shooting his own penis off with a .38 caliber handgun.
The Trinidad and Tobago Guardian reports that the unidentified 33-year-old Lopinot resident was rushed to the San Fernando General Hospital on Sunday suffering from a gunshot wound that obliterated his manhood.
According to the Guardian, a Rio Claro resident called police around 8 a.m. after to report hearing a gunshot coming from a parked car. Officers responding to the call found the man slumped over behind the steering wheel. He was bleeding from a wound in his groin and a .38 pistol was found in his pocket.
It was later determined that the man did not have a permit for the handgun. Authorities say he will likely be charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition when he recovers.
As bizarre as this story may seem, this sort of thing is not uncommon. Last September, 18-year-old Michael Smeriglio of Port St. Lucie, Florida shot off his penis and one of his testicles with a gun he had just purchased.
A year earlier, an Arizona man blew his penis off after tucking his girlfriend's pink pistol into the waistband of his pants.
And in 2010, a Washington man lost his testicles after a gun tucked into his waistband accidentally discharged.
