ANDERSON, S.C.--Authorities say a man has died after he accidentally stabbed himself while cooking.
Anderson CountyChief Deputy Coroner Charlie Boseman say 32-year-old Michael Downing burned himself while cooking Sunday, then stabbed himself in the chest with a steak knife he was holding as he jerked away.
Authorities say the knife went between Downing's ribs, piercing his heart. Boseman say Downing managed to call 911, and his 10-year-old son followed the dispatchers's first aid instructions.
Authorities say Downing was conscious when paramedics arrived, but later died at the hospital..
I feel for the kid, I hope he doesn't blame himself for the death of his father. It looked as if a comedy of errors went awry.
