Another gun kills baby in US!
Ailey Gordon (3) accidentally shot herself at Christmas. A few days later, the little girl died of her injuries.
According to American media reports, the family of a three-year-old child had guests during the holidays. Ailey, a former sheriff of Henderson County, North Carolina, found the gun in a bystander’s car. When called to the emergency number at 2.30pm on Christmas day, the father reportedly said, “She picked them up, she left.”
Dramatic: In the struggle for his daughter’s life, the father lost his precious time because he could only make an emergency call from the fire station next door. In Edwinville, a city of 2,000 people where the family lives, the father has no cell phone reception.
So he had to first take the injured person to the fire department, from where the child was finally taken away by ambulance. He took the girl to Ashville Hospital, about 30 miles[30 km]away.

Three days later, on Tuesday evening, the hospital announced that Ailey was dead. On Wednesday, the sheriff’s office where her father worked announced her death. It is not yet clear whether the owner of the revolver will be investigated. It is determined by the State Attorney of North Carolina and the State Defense Agency.
Family and friends have launched an online fundraising campaign. The aim is to offset the high hospital costs. Instead of 5,000, nearly $ 19,000 has been raised so far. Advertising is still active on “gofundme.com”.
After the baby died, the parents released a message. Tim and Anya wrote: “Our beautiful angel has wings. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the tremendous support.
Incredible: According to the archives of gun violence, in 2021 alone, a total of 308 children under the age of eleven were shot dead in the United States.
