A 13-Year-Old Accidentally Kills Himself On Instagram Live This Week

Submitted by: fancylad 7 months ago in News & Politics


Malachi Hemphill, 13, had been posing with a gun on Instagram Live when he mistakenly pulled the trigger at his home in Forest Park, Georgia, in the US. Around 40 people were watching when he killed himself. His body was found by family members, who broke down his bedroom door after hearing a loud bang.

A sad story for sure, but playing with a firearm and treating it like a prom? That's a Darwin Award nominee.

Sorry for him and his family but those two pictures speak volumes. Flashing gang signs at that age shows a lack of smarts. Live like a thug, die like a thug. God rest his soul.

scheckydamon One of the main rules of gangs is that when ever a member is photographed and does not show his gang sign they are punished and kids are often born into gangs BUT I whole hartedly agree with you Shecky, too young, Too stupid and live the thug life, die the thug life

It's a tragedy but a tragedy that could have been avoided.  Darwin award for sure.
