This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
Talk about lady luck looking out for you!
A father and his son were on a hunting trip, doing as they do, when the father tripped and accidentally shot his son in the head with a shotgun.
Here's what one police person said:
"It sounds like he was pretty lucky. In talking to our conservation officers who investigated, it sounds like there were some pellets that hit him in the back of the head, but it probably wasn’t a direct hit from the full load of that shotgun shell.”
Christopher Rearick says him shooting his son Ryan Rearick was complete unavoidable, and also said:
"It's situations like this that make you sit back and think about life and how precious it is."
His son Ryan though doesn't seem shaken up at all. He wants to get right back in the hunt of things as soon as Dad is ready to go.
Which, if it were us, would never. But hey everyone's different.
