According to reports, a 27-year-old webcam model mistakenly shot herself in the v*gina while recording a video for her customers.
Authorities said the incident happened inside her home earlier this month.
Police were called to an “accidental gunshot wound” at a residence in Thomaston, Georgia, USA, shortly before noon on November 9.
A sheriff’s deputy arrived to the scene to find a paramedic holding an unloaded handgun and a spent bullet casing, who told police: “The female had shot herself in her v*gina, accidentally.”
It is believed the model is named Lauren Hunter Daman. She was reportedly alone inside her bedroom when the 9mm firearm was discharged.
Resident Jordan Allen, who said he owned the gun, told police that he rushed into the bedroom after a hearing a gunshot from the kitchen.
Allen said that she had a “small amount of blood” on her leg and she was apologising when he came into the room before she went on to explain that she had shot herself by mistake.
He told authorities that she has subscribers on a sexual web platform called Chatter and that she “makes s3xual videos of herself and people pay her to see them”.
Addie Ruth Johnson, another occupant, confirmed that the model had shot herself.
Police said her account of the shooting changed at times, with her even claiming at one point that the handgun went off during a consensual s3x act with Allen.
The model was moved from her home to the Upson County Sheriff’s Office, where a helicopter then flew her to a hospital.
Authorities have classified the incident as “reckless conduct” and it is unlikely that they will issue any criminal charges, according to Sheriff Dan Kilgore.
