BOY, 4, DIES AFTER ACCIDENTALLY SHOOTING HIMSELF EARLIER THIS WEEK

ABC 13.com


HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A 4-year-old boy who was in the hospital after accidentally shooting himself earlier this week has passed away.

Bryson Hernandez's family released a statement Thursday night to pass along the heartbreaking news.

Investigators say the shooting happened Tuesday. Bryson found his grandfather's gun and started playing with it when the gun accidentally discharged.

He had been at Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition.

Below is the full statement released by Bryson's family.

"Bryson, our sweet little boy who was loved by everyone he ever met, passed away earlier today and we are utterly heartbroken. Bryson really loved two things in his life: his family - especially his little sisters - and Iron Man. He was very protective of his sisters and always there for them, teaching the right way to cross the street and hugging them when they cried. Iron Man was his favorite superhero. He had the costume, the pillow, everything. He looked up to Iron Man because he was strong, fearless and he dedicated his life to helping others. Today, through the most horrible of circumstances, Bryson got his wish to become Iron Man himself. He was strong and fearless as he was fighting for his life, and now he will be a hero too: as an organ donor, his life will save the lives of several other children. Soon he will be laid to rest in his Iron Man costume, with his head on his Iron Man pillow, since we know he wouldn't have had it any other way. Continue reading
