(Newser) – A light-hearted game of Russian roulette at a wedding party landed a pal of the groom in the hospital when he shot himself in the head with a gun believed to be unloaded. A home video of the Russian party shows a guest pulling a gun from his waistband, holding it to his head and pulling the trigger as it goes "click." He hands it to another guest, who crumples to the ground as he fires a rubber bullet directly into his skull.

He's now fighting life threatening wounds. The gun's owner told police he was certain he had removed all the bullets and only wanted to "enliven" the wedding party, reports the Telegraph. An investigation is continuing.
