“Had this accident not happened, my mom could have been gone at any time.” That’s the conclusion of Steve Ross (above) after his 77-year-old father, Boyd, shot his mother in the neck. As nydailynews.com relates, the elder Mr. Ross touched off a shotgun blast inside his home “when he was checking to see if it was loaded.” One pellet of bird shot struck his mother, Charlene, in the neck sending her to the hospital.ย That ER visit is where they discovered Mrs. Ross’s irregular heartbeat. As Steve proclaimed,ย “You hate to use cliches, but this is a Christmas miracle.” God bless us, everyone.

  1. he was checking to see if it was loaded.

    Don’t leave us hanging — was it loaded or not? The same question applies to Boyd Ross. ‘Cause only a drunk or a total mor0n would check a gun by pulling its trigger.

  2. I should shoot all my family and friends in the neck to see if they have any medical conditions.

    you don’t check to see if it is loaded by pulling the trigger, dumbass.

  5. There are multiple types of irregular heartbeat and they can be caused many different factors. Congenital defects, heart disease, injuries, addictive substances, other medical conditions. Even medication to treat one type of irregular heartbeat can cause another type of irregular heartbeat, believe it or not.

    Even without knowing anything more about this person’s medical history, we do know that she’s 75 years old and that advanced age is a known risk factor for irregular heartbeat. I’d bet she hasn’t been seeing a family physician for regular check-ups, or even just an annual physical. Had she been, this condition would have easily been discovered and promptly treated.

    This negligent discharge isn’t so much a one-time blessing in disguise, as it is some reckless people pushing their luck, repeatedly.
