Shot By Mistake

Matilda Kaye Crabtree, 14, of West Monroe, La., used to try to scare her father as a joke. Last week, she made a tragic miscalculation. She had planned to sleep over at a friend’s; instead she stayed home, hid in a closet and then made scary noises when her parents arrived. Her father grabbed a .357- caliber pistol. “Boo!” she shouted. His shot hit her in the neck. Her final words to him: “I love you, Daddy.”
