Family and friends have gathered at a tearful memorial for a US woman tragically shot and killed by her own toddler earlier this week.
Milwuakee mother Patrice Price was driving two of her three children and her mother in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when the two-year-old picked up a 40-calibre gun and fired a single shot through the driver’s seat and into her back.
As her daughter slumped over the wheel, May Watson managed to put her foot on the brake and steer the car to the side of the road, reported The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Paramedics arrived to find the 26-year-old with no pulse and, despite desperate attempts to revive her, she was pronounced dead at the scene.
The tragic incident bares a striking resemblance to a case last month in which a Florida pro-gun activist was shot by her four-year-old while driving. Jamie Gilt was injured but survived.
