Girl Hospitalized After Getting Shot In Face With BB Gun
DAYTON -- A little girl was taken to Dayton Children's Hospital after being shot in the eye with a BB gun.
According to police, the 5-year-old girl was lying on the floor at a home on East Second Street when another child pointed the gun at her and accidentally pulled the trigger.
The BB gun was less than two feet from the child's face when it was fired. She was rushed to the hospital with significant injuries to her eyeball.
Ina Ashley lives close to where the shooting occurred.
"We're lucky this little girl is alive," Ashley said. "I pray to God she makes it and will be OK."
"BB guns can do a lot of harm," says Michele Nadolsky, a trauma nurse at Dayton Children's Hospital. She adds BB gun injuries involving children are on the rise.
This year they have treated more than a dozen kids injured by BB guns, and two of those kids had critical injuries.
"We see more injuries from BB guns than handguns or shotguns," she says.
The girl's father said he was outside smoking a cigarette when the shooting occurred. He told police he usually keeps the gun hidden in the garage and doesn't know how the kids got a hold of it.
"They need to be locked up," Nadolsky adds. The ammunition needs to be kept separate from the gun and it also needs to be locked up as well," she says.
"These guns, they are not toys, they are real. And kids don't realize that and how much damage they can do," Ashley says.
The girl's father is facing a child endangering charge. The juvenile who fired the BB gun could face an assault charge.
