(Scroll down for video) A father is brokenhearted over the loss of his daughter after he accidentally shot her in the face.
17-year-old Kaitlyn Pullman of Missouri, was hospitalized after being hit by a bullet. Two days later, her family made the heartbreaking decision to turn off her life support machine.
Butler County Sheriff Mark Dobbs said that the father did not realize that the gun was loaded when he handled it.
After the shooting, the teenager was found in her bedroom unresponsive and she had a single gunshot wound to the face.
Paramedics rushed Pullman to the hospital, where she remained in a coma until her family made the decision to remove her from life support.
Pastor David Stewart said that the Pullman family was deeply touched by the outpouring of support from so many people.
“The family just greatly appreciates everything that people have done. They have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity,” the pastor said.
Pastor Stewart described Kaitlyn as a smart girl who had dreams of working in forensics. The family plans to donate Kaitlyn’s organs.
