Man NDs cannon into trailer, kills wife
A most unusual EMS response: Woman killed by cannonball fired by husband and friend in Potrero, California.
A woman died Tuesday after a homemade cannon blew a projectile into a mobile home in a remote San Diego County community.
Two men, including the woman's husband, were tinkering with the cannon outside the home when it went off and sent a projectile into the home, said Capt. Mike Mohler of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
Deputies confirm a man called around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday to report that he accidentally shot his 33-year-old wife with a cannon ball from his homemade cannon. He and a friend were working on the cannon. A Cal Fire dispatcher said the man had been drinking and was "freaking out."
