Forgive me, I've been there, but still feel guilty because I laughed.
Gulf Hammock, Florida -- A Florida man shot himself in the foot with a crossbow while hunting on Sunday night.
Champion, who is a paraplegic, was reportedly cocking his crossbow when he accidentally fired the bolt through his left foot, pinning it to the floor of the ATV.
He was unable to free his foot, and then became stuck on some brush when he attempted to drive out. Other hunters and family members eventually arrived and Champion was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
FWC investigators say he suffered a puncture wound and several broken bones
OK, it's really not funny, and I totally have empathy for anyone who has been burdened with physical disabiltiy, and I would honestly run to his aid at the risk of my own safety, but I really have to hope that he has a sense of humor and can laugh at this once he is recovered and safe.
It has a slap stick quality to it that places images of Chevy Chase or Red Skelton or any one of us in a self inflected mess, that just causes me to chuckle. forgive me, and I hope he is healing nicely.
Donít pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he will just kill you.
