AZCentral.com: Police Urge Holster Use After Man Shoots His Own Penis
As Chandler residents Joshua Seto, 27, and his fiancée, Cara Christopher, walked over to a Fry’s Food Store for refreshments, he tried securing her pink handgun in the front waistband of his pants.
The gun fired, striking Seto’s penis and continuing through his left thigh. The bleeding started immediately and was heavy, according to police dispatch recordings released Sunday.
“He is still conscious, there is just a lot of blood,” Christopher , 26, told 9-1-1 operators and dispatchers.
One operator told Christopher to apply direct pressure to the wound with a dry towel or T-shirt, but to avoid looking at the wound.
“I did look at it,” Christopher said. “It’s pretty bad.”
My immediate thought: “Guns Don’t Kill Penises; Idiots With Pink Guns Kill Penises.”
The best response, however, came from a friend on Facebook: “Looks like that pistol was equipped with a decocker.”
