Yeah... right..... happens to me every time I bring my submachine to dinner...Needlees to say my dinner parties are not always a huge success... due to this minor faux-pas.
A Thai senator accidentally shot his ex-wife dead with a submachine gun during a family meal in a restaurant, police have said.
Boonsong Kowawisarat fatally injured Chanakarn Detkard, 46, when he mistakenly fired the 9mm Uzi as he tried to put it away after placing it on the table.
Chanakarn, who worked as the senator's secretary, suffered a bullet wound to the stomach and died on the way to hospital, according to local police.
Officers said around five family members had been sitting in a private dining area of the Garden Resort, in Phrae province, northern Thailand, when the gun went off on Sunday evening.
Police said Boonsong, 56, who is the senate representative for northern Mae Hong Son province, will be charged with causing death by negligence, it was reported in The Daily Telegraph.
He faces a maximum of 10 years imprisonment and a 20,000 baht (£405) fine.
