OZ MEN TEST RIFLE
MELBOURNE — Two Australian men needed surgery after shooting each other in the buttocks during a drinking session to see if it would hurt, police said on Wednesday.
The men, both aged 34, used an air rifle to fire at each other on Sunday. By Tuesday, both were in hospital to have pellets removed from their buttocks and legs. According to a police spokesperson, the men were sharing a few beers on Sunday evening when they decided to test whether or not a shot from an air rifle would penetrate their skin and if it would hurt.
Two days later, both men have been admitted to hospital and require surgery to remove slug pellets from their buttocks and legs.
One man’s firearm licence has subsequently been confiscated. — Sapa-AFP.
