"A US toddler has been killed after accidentally shooting herself while
apparently mistaking a gun for a Nintendo Wii video game controller.

Cheyenne
McKeehan, 3, picked up the pistol from a living room coffee table and
fired it into her abdomen while her mother sat a few feet away, the
Tennessean reported.

The girl, from rural Tennessee, had learned
to fire a gun from playing a Nintendo Wii game with a special
gun-shaped controller, a statement from the Wilson County Sheriff's
office said.

Sheriff Terry Ashe said parents need to make sure
they keep guns out of reach of children, especially considering the
similarity between the Wii controller and an actual handgun.

"If you have a live handgun and a toy that looks the same for parents some bells and whistles need to go off," he said.

"You
can see by the comparison of the toy weapon and the real weapon that
there's little chance a three-year-old would differentiate between the
two."

The semi-automatic handgun belonging to Cheyenne's father
Douglas Cronberger was normally left in a cabinet but had been loaded
and left out after he thought he heard a prowler.

When he came back inside, Mr Cronberger left the gun on the table and went to bed, reports said.

Cheyenne was pronounced dead soon after her arrival at hospital.."
