A Collier County, Florida teenager was left frantically dialing 911 after he was accidentally shot in the penis by a friend.
The 15-year-old was terrified while on the phone with a dispatcher, begging him to send help. “I've been shot. I've been shot,” he said. “Can you please call the rescue?”
“What kind of gun did you shoot yourself with? Where were you shot at?,” the dispatcher asked. “I don't know. Just please come get me, please. I'm bleeding out, please,” the boy replied. “I think I am shot in the arm...and I think my penis.”
Emergency services responded to the scene, and the teen was promptly flown to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Meyers. While at the hospital for treatment, the young victim was, according to reports, initially uncooperative and unwilling to provide specific details about the incident.
He later admitted that his friend accidentally shot him, and said that he instructed his friend to leave after the shooting so he could avoid getting in trouble. The friend returned to the victim’s house later and, after hours of interrogation, told officers what happened. Authorities said they have not determined where the boys obtained the weapon.
Police reportedly arrested one of the teens for obstruction of justice.
