OROFINO, Idaho (AP) - A man has been charged with involuntary manslaughter for fatally shooting his friend through a protective vest on an apparent dare, police said.

Alexander Joseph Swandic, 20, died of a gunshot wound to the heart Monday after donning a protective vest and asking David John Hueth, 30, to shoot him, police said.

Hueth initially told police that Swandic's wound was self-inflicted, but later admitted to the shooting. The two had apparently tested the vest by propping it against a dirt bank and shooting it twice, police said.

Police said the vest was designed to protect against grenade fragments, not bullets.

Swandic was pronounced dead at a local hospital following the shooting.

Hueth faces a preliminary hearing on Dec. 27. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.

I don't know who is stupider. Is that even a word?


Edit: Well it's not in the dictionary, so I'll say "more foolish", hahaha.

the vest was ment too protect against Bomb fragments it seems it would also be bullet proof


1: It says grenade fragments
2: Bomb/Grenade--> HUGE difference
3: Bullet/Grenade--> again, HUGE difference

When a grenade explodes, it sends little shards of metal flying everywhere, they transperce skin and flesh and can break bones. Bullet: small pointy metal object probably going 50x faster than a grenade fragment and designed to transperce, where as metal fragments just fly randomly.
