A man was rushed to a hospital with a gunshot wound after shooting himself in the foot, police in Spain said.
Police said that the 35-year-old unidentified man was admitted to the hospital last weekend in Elda.
Police have not yet found the gun that the man used to shoot himself in the foot. Investigators believe that he threw it out of the car window on the way to the hospital.
Investigators will ask a court to order a psychological evaluation before filing weapons charges against the man. During questioning, the man told police that he wanted to experience the feeling of being shot.
In March, a man was arrested on charges of possession of a firearm after allegedly shooting himself in the private parts while playing poker, police in Oregon said.
Roseburg Police said that they arrested 27-year-old Jeried Christopher Wiliker around 12:15 a.m. on Thursday, after he was accused of accidentally shooting himself in the private parts while playing poker at the Idle Hour Tavern.
Officers who arrived at the scene, found Wiliker laying on the porch of the tavern, where the man told officers he had accidentally shot himself.
He was treated by the Fire Department and then transported to Mercy Hospital for further treatment. According to the police investigation, Wiliker had been playing video poker and had the gun in his pants.
When he stood up, the gun moved and when he grabbed it, it discharged. He was hit in the private parts and the right leg, but his injuries were not considered life threatening.
Wiliker was charged with illegal possession of a firearm.
