A Labrador dog has shot its owner after stepping on a loaded gun kept inside the car they were riding in.
44-year-old Tina Springer was seating on the passenger side of a car that had stopped at a railroad crossing to wait for a passing train. And suddenly, her dog named Molly jumped and landed on the middle console of the car where a fully loaded .22 caliber pistol was kept.

Reports gathered by Naijauto say the 7-month-old dog was startled by the train crossing. Molly’s paw had an impact on the gun kept on the console which triggered a shot that struck Tina in her left leg.
The driver of the car, Brent Parks, 79, called 911 when the incident happened. He narrated what happened and the dispatcher told Brent to stop Tina's bleeding by making a tourniquet for her. Brent used a belt to cut off the flow of blood to her wound before she was rushed to the hospital in Enid, Oklahoma.
Molly has returned home and Tina plans to keep the dog away from trains henceforth.
