A 10th grade student accidentally shot and killed himself while shooting a video for TikTok, a highly popular Chinese social media app, police said on Friday.
They said the incident took place in Bagan neighbourhood of Abbottabad where Abdul Samad was filming video with a pistol. He accidentally squeezed the trigger, fatally injuring himself.
The body has been shifted to a nearby hospital for medico-legal formalities. This is not the first time that a life has been lost while filming a TikTok video. Lately, an 18-year-old boy in Narowal lost his life while making a video for the app.
This is not the first time that a life has been lost while filming a TikTok video. In April, a 22-year-old man died after being hit by a train while shooting a video in Karachi.
Separately, in December, a 16-year-old boy, Ammar Haider, was accidentally shot dead while recording a TikTok video with his friends in Sialkot district of Punjab province. The friends told the police that he shot himself by accident, though the deceased’s parents claimed one of his friends shot him.
The body was shifted to a nearby hospital for medico-legal formalities.
