A man in South Carolina died after he told a friend to shoot him in the chest as he was testing a bulletproof vest.
26-year old Blake Wardell bled to death after the bullet missed the Kevlar vest, despite friends performing CPR.
Taylor Ann Kelly, 18, was reportedly charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the shooting and can face five years in prison.
“It wasn’t a fight. They were actually going to take a shot at the vest,” Don McCown, the Anderson County deputy coroner, told the paper. “They were going to shoot the victim with the vest on. And he was shot in the chest, just above the vest.”
Deputies said in the arrest warrant they believe that the victim asked Kelly to shoot him.
