LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Police all over the country warned people not to ring in the new year by firing their guns into the air. A toddler's near-death experience this past New Year's Eve is a good example of how celebratory gunfire can turn dangerous.
If the bullet had hit 2-year-old Cameron Eli Compton just a few inches over, he may not have survived. Thankfully, the wound is not fatal. Cameron's dad, Dustin, said the bullet has been removed and that Cameron is going to be OK.
"We know that we are truly blessed that we still have our little soldier and that he's going to be OK," Dustin posted on Facebook.
