Pregnant woman accidentally kills boyfriend in failed YouTube stunt

A pregnant woman in the US has been charged with manslaughter after accidentally shooting dead her boyfriend in what is believed to have been a YouTube stunt gone terribly wrong.

The 19-year-old was arrested by Minnesota Police on Monday after shooting at her 22-year-old boyfriend while he held a book to his chest, CNN reports.

It’s understood the pair were filming the stunt to upload it to their YouTube channel, local media say.


The young woman posted a chilling tweet before the accident, writing: “Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most dangerous videos ever?? HIS idea not MINE?”

The Evening Standard said an Air Ambulance was tasked to the couple’s home in Norman County, however the 22-year-old could not be revived.

The 19-year-old woman has since been charged with second-degree manslaughter.
