Deputies quick actions save life of 5-year-old Florida girl who shot self in leg with shotgun

A group of deputies from Florida is being praised for their quick-thinking actions that likely saved a 5-year-old girl’s life.

On Saturday afternoon, the kindergartner gained access to a shotgun under a family member’s bed in Deltona and accidentally shot herself in the leg, Volusia Sheriff’s Office said. 

The girl was found conscious and alert by responding deputies, but bleeding from her injuries. 

Bodycam footage shared by the department is blurred as not to identify the child or be too graphic by showing the wound, but first responders can be heard saying “get the tourniquet.”

“Deputies Maletto, Kagle, Williams, Estrada and Rodriguez worked quickly to administer aid, apply a tourniquet and carry the child out to Deltona Fire Rescue,” Volusia Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post. 

The girl can be seen being carried out of the home and put on a stretcher before she was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando, where medical staff said the quick response and care the girl received likely saved her life.
