Things that go boom


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Police are on the scene of a shooting at the Renaissance Pointe YMCA

Initial reports indicated that a man accidentally shot himself in the neck. According to an officer on the scene, the man forgot he had his gun in his gym bag and dropped the bag on the floor and the gun discharged.

I probably shouldn't make light of this too much. Even though it was a silly thing for him to do, it could have turned out so much worse.

But this guy goes one better, and I don't feel bad about laughing at it.

Irish police believe that a gangland bomber blew himself up after he forgot about the clocks changing for summer time while he was planting a bomb on Sunday.

The police are waiting to interview a man who, it is suspected, was severely injured after the bomb he was planting went off early.

The suspected bomber was seen fleeing the area in Dublin with "blood dripping down his face" after an explosive device planted under a Volvo SUV went off.
