Three Year Old Dies Due To Wii Gun Confusion

Posted by TurtleGirl On March - 9 - 2010

A three-year-old in , Tennessee died Sunday evening after accidentally shooting herself in the abdomen with a weapon she may have mistaken for a plastic Wii attachment.

According to reports via livedoor . Three-year-old Cheyenne Alexis McKeehan had been playing a Nintendo Wii game in her living room using a gun-shaped controller which, according to the reports, looked identical to the one used by her stepfather used to scare away dogs that were hanging about the family’s home.



The game’s controller was shaped exactly like a gun which looked similar to the real handgun, which her stepfather had put on a table in the living room. Apparently the girl pulled the gun off the table and it went off. This is a sad and tragic story, but what do we learn from this story?.

    Is it not common sense to not leave LIVE WEAPONS just around the house. I have children and I would never think about leaving anything that is dangerous or deadly or could harm them in anyway where they can reach.

    What a stupid man he is, he should get a manslaughter charge.

    What have I learned….. Well, that the idiot of a step father should not have left a loaded gun out on the table near a three year old child….

    Well this is certainly tragic, there is no doubt about that. But to answer your question of “what do we learn from this story?” I would say that people need to learn not to leave guns and other weapons lying around the house when they have little ones. That is the real story here, not the fact that the 3 year old was playing with a Wii gun controller! What was the guy thinking?

    I agree, why leave a loaded gun about. Maybe it shot blanks or something and thought it was safe but it still shouldn’t be left out.

    The parnets fault.

    - First of all he had a gun!
    - Second of all it was loaded
    - And third in a childs reach.

    The father should be put away for as long as he could. Another thing this will all be the video games fault too … some how they will put it in there.

    I remember when the dreamcast came out a kid was playin with there gun outside. Police shot him. Thats why they started to come with warnings.

    The parents are to blame here for a multitude of reasons. First is for leaving a LOADED weapon in an easily accessible place when you have a three year old. Second is for not teaching your 3 year old common f****ng sense. I mean seriously…. When I was somewhere around the age of 3-5 my bother and I found a gun in our backyard, not knowing if it were real or not, we got our PARENTS. It was in fact a toy gun. We probably played SNES after that. The moral of the story is being 3 is not an excuse for being so stupid you can’t tell the difference between a white plastic gun and a black metal gun. Also what the f*** is this parent doing letting a three year old play a game with a gun controller like that? I was probably 8 when I got Judge Dread and Die Hard on the ps1 that had a gun controller and guess what? I still knew the difference between real and fake and still wouldn’t stick a f****ng gun in my stomach (real or fake) because that’s just not a smart thing to do
