An eight-months pregnant woman was accidentally shot in the face by her younger child, 4 after he found a gun under a mattress in his home in Seattle.

The woman was taken to the hospital after the near-fatal accident. Her condition is said to be improving.

The toddler found a loaded gun in his parents’ bedroom. The weapon wasn’t secured and somehow went off. Woman’s boyfriend, who is the boy’s father brought it home last month to protect his family, the police said.
