The week after Canada Day- or any long weekend- is always full of funny and terrible stories about the dumb things people got up to over the holiday… and here’s one of them.
A man was taken to hospital after he was hit in the eye by bullet fragments at a southern Manitoba bonfire over the Canada Day long weekend.
RCMP say it happened about 4am on July 2, so at that point we can probably assume there’s been some drinks flowing…. Mounties say five people were at a campfire when a 21-year-old man started throwing .22- caliber shells into the fire.
One of the bullets exploded and some fragments struck a 23-year-old man in the eye. Nor surprisingly, police say alcohol was a factor.
