Man Shoots Part Of His Face Off

A Maine man learning first hand the tragedies of mixing alcohol with weapons.

Reports say 31-year-old Dale Poulin, from Waterville, Maine, shot part of his face off last Wednesday night while sharing hunting stories with friends at a home.

Police Chief Joseph Massey says it was chaotic when officers arrived at the scene, finding Poulin's teeth, chin, and blood on the floor, while the man sat in a chair missing his face from the nose down.

Reports say Poulin was showing off his rifle when he dropped it and it discharged.

Poulin is now in a Boston hospital in stable condition and is able to communicate by writing.
