This is the horrifying moment a 13-year-old boy accidentally shot dead a 12-year-old girl on Facebook Live while playing with a shotgun. The children were playing with friends in a house in Santa Rosa de Calchines, in Argentina's Santa Fe province when the tragedy happened. ...

This is the horrifying moment a 13-year-old boy accidentally shot dead a 12-year-old girl on Facebook Live while playing with a shotgun.

The children were playing with friends in a house in Santa Rosa de Calchines, in Argentina’s Santa Fe province when the tragedy happened.

Footage captured by one of the youngsters in the room shows the boy pointing his father’s gun at the girl, named locally as Georgina Magalí Vega. Believing it to be unloaded, he can be seen pulling the trigger a number of times.

But seconds later, and with the camera pointing away, the harrowing video captures the sound of a shot. It later emerged that Georgina had been killed instantly when the weapon was fired.

According to local reports, the horrifying incident unfolded on Facebook Live in the middle of the afternoon.

At the beginning of the clip, the boy can be heard saying ‘Look at this. A shell. I load it and I shoot you but you don’t die.

Georgina then jokingly replies: ‘Do you see blood or something?’

Moments later the shotgun is fired before the boy and two other friends start screaming ‘Georgi’ repeatedly.

A girl asks ‘what have you done?’ before another child says ‘her parents are going to kill us.’

In panic, the children then run out of the house.

Georgina is believed to have been the only daughter of a man in Santa Rosa de Calchines.

Argentinian media say the gun belonged to the boy’s father and that it was not unusual for people to own guns in the town, which is near a popular hunting area.

Police have launched an investigation, but they are working on the theory that the death was a tragic accident.
