You would probably leave the tap running while vacationing, or leave the gas on when you’re leaving for work, or lock yourself out of the house. These are the small kinds of mistakes that all of us have experienced personally or second-hand.

But a man in Florida has gone a notch up. 37-year-old Michael Blevins shot himself while cleaning a handgun, but did not realize it until 3 days later.

Belvins says that as he stood up, his back gave out, and he fell knocking his head on the coffee table.
