Never play around with guns. Ever. A 43-year-old South Carolina man died after attempting to demonstrate the correct way to shoot yourself in the head. Eyewitnesses say that James Gagum was watching a film, and in an effort to correct a "mistake" that he observed, placed his gun to his head and said "that's not how it's done."

Possibly unaware that the weapon was loaded, he pulled the trigger several times. On the third attempt, the weapon discharged. Paramedics soon arrived and pronounced him dead at the scene, and the Horry County police department confirmed that the shooting was unintentional.
