Idiot mother tries to light her cigarette with what she thought was a novelty light, except the lighter is actually a .22. The bullet hits the floor, ricochets, and enters her daughter’s arm.
Avila and her 12-year-old daughter “were talking with friends in front of their mobile home when Avila found what she thought was a novelty lighter…Avila picked it up and tried to light it by pulling the trigger. The first time Avila pulled the trigger, nothing happened. The second time she pulled the trigger, a .22-caliber bullet was fired. The bullet struck the ground, and then ricocheted upward and entered her daughter’s upper right arm.”
