A security guard in Trinidad and Tobago accidentally shot off his penis with an illegal gun, local press is reporting.
The Trinidad and Tobago Guardian reports that the 33-year-old man was carrying a .38 caliber handgun in his pocket when it went off, shooting him in the groin.
Police attending a report of a gunshot coming from a parked car in the town of Rio Claro found the guard slumped over the wheel and bleeding from his groin.
The man had a .38 caliber gun and had four rounds of ammunition in his pocket.
The guard was then transported to San Fernando General Hospital where he remained under police supervision.
At the hospital police discovered the guard did not have an ownership license.
Adding insult to already unpleasant injury the man is now expected to be charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Although shocking, accidental penis shooting accidents are not uncommon, and incidents were recorded in Florida, Arizona and Washington in 2012.
