Wet grass causes shotgun injury

Grassclippings - Grass Vs ShotgunA young father is learning to walk again after accidentally shooting himself through the foot with a shotgun.

Landscape gardener Jamie Cameron, 29, was carrying the large weapon on a hunting trip in Muddiford in Devon when he slipped on wet grass.

His father Eddie works as a police officer at the local station and anxiously awaited more details after the emergency call was patched through to his station.

Jamie's gun fired two shots - one which went straight through his right foot and blew off his big toe.  He was airlifted to hospital and survived the shooting but will have to learn to walk again after having his toe amputated and shrapnel removed from his legs.

Jamie still has the boots he was wearing during the accident - one of which has a clean hole where the shot went through.  The freak accident happened as Jamie and his brother Stuart, 21, prepared to shoot crows at a friend's farm on April 6.
