I am embarrassed to say that I know and share the same unit as the person in question. Yes I am older and clearly wiser in handling weapons. However, there are some people who should never hold a weapon period, and he is one of them. It could have been an accident, and maybe partially is but the real truth will be revealed and 100% was negligence and stupidity combined. But what was originally reported in the papers, is not the whole truth. This person isn't exactly the ideal Soldier. Especially when we found out who it was. He can be nice, but it's usually because he wants something.
"There is a secret pride in every human heart that revolts at tyranny. You may order and drive an individual, but you cannot make him respect you." William Hazlitt (1778 - 1830)
