In perhaps one of the dumbest requests ever made, a South Carolina man asked his female friend to shoot him after he put on a bullet proof vest. As you can imagine, this stunt went entirely wrong as the woman missed her mark.
The incident began when 25-year-old Blake Randall Wardell was hanging out with his friends in his garage when he got a brilliant idea. He left the room and soon came back with a bullet proof vest and gun where he asked 18-year-old Taylor Ann Kelly to shoot him in the vest.
Kelly did as he asked, but she missed the vest entirely hitting Wardell just above the Kevlar plate where the round penetrated his torso and went directly through his heart. According to emergency personnel, CPR was being administered to Wardell when they arrived, but they soon declared the man dead.
The female friend has since been formally charged with involuntary manslaughter which holds a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison. She is currently awaiting a bail hearing.
