Dad Shot By Son When Climbing Down The Chimney Dressed As Santa
Chicago, United States.— A man was shot by his 11-year old son when he was climbing down the chimney dressed as Santa on Christmas day, local authorities reported. It seems like the kid didn’t believe in Santa Claus, so he didn’t think that Santa was coming in with gifts. He thought it was someone trying to break into the house, so he reached a gun and shoot at the first person he saw.
“I considered that maybe Santa actually existed but it was impossible for me and I just shot at the first individual I saw” said the little kid in tears to our reporter Gary Cockburn. He kept going: “I’m very sorry for this. Now I’m not getting any gifts”.
John Smith, the father of the kid, is alive and recovering at the hospital, with a wound on his left arm. He didn’t want to declare anything.
The mom, Linda Smith, declared that the kid should have never had access to the gun in the first place, and that it is all the father’s fault for teaching him how to aim and shoot.
“I was sleeping, calmly on Christmas day and suddenly I heard gunshots inside the house. My husband wasn’t by my side and when I checked my kid’s room he wasn’t there. That’s when I really panicked”, said Linda.
John is expected to recover within a month and the kid will receive psychological treatment within the next few weeks.
