Five year old boy fighting for life after being shot by his six year old brother in Enfield

A Boy, 5, fighting for life after being shot by sibling, 6

In a terrible accident, a young boy was shot with a pellet gun while playing with his sibling in the garden of a home in London Borough of Enfield, North London.

The five-year-old suffered a serious injury to the chest during the incident just before 3.30pm yesterday (Friday, May 31) and was flown to the hospital in a life-threatening condition.

Police say the boy was playing with his six-year-old sibling when the tragedy unfolded.

“The child, aged five, sustained an injury to his chest,” a Met Police spokesman said.

“It appears at this time, the child was playing with other young children in the garden when a pellet gun was loaded and discharged mistakenly by the five-year old’s sibling, aged six.

London’s Air Ambulance was deployed and has flown the child to an East London hospital.

As of this morning, the boy was still in a critical condition.
