Pennsylvania 5 year old shoots herself in the foot

Another young child has accessed a gun and shot herself. This 5 year old Philadelphia girl has shot herself in the foot. From an article:
A 5-year-old Kensington girl shot herself while playing with a gun Tuesday night, according to Philadelphia Police.
The girl was home with her two siblings and her father along the 1800 block of E Wishart Street when the gun went off -- hitting her in the big toe, police said.
The girl’s father rushed her to St. Christopher’s Hospital with what police called minor injuries.
It’s unclear how the girl got a hold of her father’s gun and if her siblings were also playing with it.
The investigation would continue into Wednesday. Police did say the girl’s father owns the gun because he works in private security.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
