South Dakota toddler shot mom while trying to get gun away

In a different sort of scenario, a South Dakota mom tried to get a gun away from her toddler and was shot accidentally when the toddler pulled the trigger. She was injured in the leg and taken to the hospital. From an article:
A mom was accidentally shot in the leg trying to take a loaded revolver away from her toddler on Thursday, according to Rapid City police.
The 22-year-old mother discovered her 23-month-old son playing with an unsecured revolver around 9 p.m. in a home on East Custer Street, according to police spokeswoman Tarah Heupel.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
