    CHARLESTON, W.Va. Dec. 7. A South Carolina woman was critically injured when a gun went off while she was trying to retrieve something from under a bed.

    Police said the bullet went through one of Sandra McClanahan's lungs and out of her back. She was hospitalized Wednesday in critical but stable condition, The Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette reported.

    The incident was under investigation but police say it appears a pistol under the bed went off accidentally.

    Police said they spoke to McClanahan's husband, who was at home at the time the gun went off, but did not take him in for questioning.

    Under the bed? Everybody knows that you store a loaded gun on the night stand and not under the bed!

    With a reporter's knowledge of firearms it may have been a rifle or shotgun. I would find that more likely to be stored under the bed with the trigger unprotected.

    It does sound a little fishy anyway.

    Unless she was trying to pull the gun out with a 'coat hangar', I have trouble figuring out how the gun just 'went off'???????

    She needs a copy of the 'four rules'...hope she recovers!

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    Perhaps she was holding the gun AS A coat hanger (ie: holding it by the barrel)?
