In the US a teenage boy was hospitalised after a friend accidentally shot him in the penis.
In a frantic 911 call, the unnamed 15-year-old, from Collier County, Florida, can be heard telling police how he received injuries to his arm and penis after the weapon accidentally discharged.
Police have said that while the teen initially refused to cooperate with their investigation, he eventually admitted that his friend had accidentally fired the weapon, but told him to leave so he would not get in trouble.
The friends of the injured boy finally told police what had happened after five hours of questioning, with one of the teenagers arrested for obstruction of justice.
The victim was flown to Lee Memorial Hospital with serious injuries, but has since been discharged.
