This story took place when Emma was younger - around five or six years old.
One night, a group of teenagers were bored and decided to steal their grandpa's gun. They took the weapon, headed to their car and drove around town. Emma does not believe that the teenagers had any truly bad intentions, and she doesn't think they wanted to hurt anyone, but the group started shooting around. They shot at an abandoned house on her street, and they destroyed a truck that was parked nearby.
The group of teenagers assumed Emma's house was abandoned, too, so they started to shoot at her window. Emma was home and asleep at the time. The bullet traveled through her bedroom window and went right through her arm.
Emma woke up - not understanding what had just happened - and felt a pain in her arm. She felt scared and confused. She tried to go back to sleep, but the pain wouldn't go away, so she decided to head to her dad's room. Her dad asked her what was wrong, and she told him that her arm was hurting her. Because it was so dark, Emma's dad didn't immediately see anything wrong with her. But when he turned on the TV to help her fall asleep, he was shocked by what he saw in the light - Emma was covered in blood.
Emma's dad started to freak out, and he looked at her arm and noticed a huge wound. But because no one in their house had her a gun shot, they didn't think it was a bullet wound - they had no idea what it could have been.
Emma's dad immediately picked her up and headed to their car. But before they could leave to go get help, they were stopped by police officers in their neighborhood - that's when they learned that she had been shot. Emma and her family were shocked, and they waited for an ambulance to arrive.
Emma was in the hospital for three days and, luckily, her arm healed. Her class made her really sweet cards while she was in the hospital, and she really appreciated their support.
The three teenagers were caught by the police, and they ended up going to jail for what they did. Emma can hardly believe it when she looks back at the experience and says to herself, "They went to jail for what they did to me."

  • This story is Bullshit how do you not hear the dam gun firing u and your family should've heard it and how didn't u hear the glass break how didn't you feel blood it's a dam liquid for gods sake and how did they hit u cuz in order to shoot u, you must be in the first floor and I doubt the bullet was deflected on the ceiling And hit her it would've gone through the ceiling how don't u feel anything wet on the bed how does she not feel sticky with all that blood drying and guns are so loud that a shot can cause someone's ears the start ringing and cause hearing damage even with a suppressor a gun can be very loud and still cause hearing damage so this shit ain't adding up If those kids thought it was abandoned take care of the dam house

  • 2 years ago my dad bought me to his friends house. He had two wild cat. I was super excited. They are in big cage so i though its fine. My dad pet one of them like petting a cat. So i did the same. But. In flash of eye my hand got bite. I was shock. My dad yell to the wild cat "Let go! Let go! Bad cat!" like that. Then he let my hand go. My hand full of blood and i just laugh like it was a joke. My dad ask me if im okay and im just nod with a smile. I laugh and say "hahaha my bad." I go to the doctor the next day cause i told my dad im fine nothing serius. My hand are fine no serius injured but i cant get my pinky straight. And there is mark on my hand cause of its teeth and claws. Moral of the story. Beware😂.

  • So this is fake. There are many aspects bit here's a big one. The police told them to wait for EMS. They said she was DRENChED in blood. If she was DRENCHED in blood they would've escorted them or taken them to the hospital. They wouldn't tell you to wait for EMS if you were shot anyway. If you have a GSW and a means of transportation, you're out of there.
