The last thing any parent wants to wake up to is a huge bullet hole in the wall of their home, especially when the bullet also came right through your baby’s crib while she was asleep – missing her by just a few inches.
Sarina and Brian Manifold, a couple in Knox County, Tennessee, woke up to the sound of gunshots coming from their daughter Brynn’s nursery. What they saw terrified them.. a stray bullet had come through the wall of their home and also through the crib where baby Brynn was sleeping. Her bed was covered in debris of chipped wood from the break in the crib.
Local police later found 9 shell casings near their home and the couple is now sharing their story to hopefully urge gun owners to be responsible when shooting their firearms.
Sarina told WVLT’s Heather Burian, “Fear, terror, grateful that she’s OK… As soon as I hung up the phone with 911, I think that’s when it hit me, and I just started hugging her and sobbing. People who choose to have weapons and want to go out and shoot them, that they [need to] know that bullets do land somewhere. And they landed in our house. And that scares me.”
The couple is now moving Brynn’s new crib to their bedroom for the next few weeks, as they are very shaken by the terrifying experience.
