A Chicago woman has been killed after a gun that was hidden among donated clothes accidentally went off, hitting her in the chest.
Carmen Dominguez was working at the charity clothing store in Chicago’s Washington Heights neighbourhood when a co-worker picked up a sock.
A .22-caliber gun inside the sock fell into the co-worker’s hand, and accidentally fired. Ms Dominguez, 54, was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
“Preliminary indications during the course of the investigation are that this is a tragic, accidental incident,” The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating…police said in a statement.
