A gun cleaner has shot himself in the leg outside Bangkok’s main airport police station.
The 40 year old gun cleaner, Damrongkiat, a trader who sells uniforms and insignia to police and cleans their weapons, had already worked on three guns at the time without any problems.
Next it was a Glock 9mm.
Damrongkiat says he forgot to remove the magazine and adjust the barrel slide. He shot himself straight through the left leg when the gun went off
“It’s all my own fault. It was lucky the bullet didn’t hit a main artery”.
The Jularata Suwannaphum rescue foundation attended to the man then took him to Jularat Hospital after the incident.
