Bedeviled by a painful wart that no cream, ointment or doctor could cure, Sean Murphy reportedly
decided to try a radical — and permanent — at-home procedure. His surgical tool: a 12-bore Beretta shotgun.
In a move that seems fitting of the Wild West, rather than modern England, the security guard fortified himself with a healthy dose of the local anaesthetic — in lager form, naturally — stretched out his left hand, aimed, and pulled the trigger.
Unfortunately for Murphy, the blast had collateral damage. According to The Telegraph
, it blew off nearly the entire middle finger on his left hand, and left the 38-year-old facing possible prison time for illegal possession of a firearm.
