Meet Jamie Gilt
Jamie Gilt is a Jacksonville, Florida resident who got a heck of a scare after she was shot by her own son. Accoridng to a news release, Jamie Gilt was shot in the back by her four-year-old son! Reports say the small boy found the gun in the back of his mother’s truck.
The unfortunate incident took place when the mother and son, were driving to pick up a horse.

Jamie Gilt then stopped partially in the travel lanes near the intersection of Rowland Avenue. A deputy who was on patrol stopped and checked on the vehicle.
Jamie Gilt –who had not lost consciousness –was able to signal to the deputy that she needed assistance.
The mother, was rushed to hospital in Gainesville, Florida; while her son was reunited with relatives. Jamie Gilt was said to be in stable condition. Before being transported to the emergency room, the victim told deputies that her son had accidentally shot her.
