Melbourne, Mar 23 (ANI): A wedding turned into a tragedy, when a guest was seriously wounded playing "Russian roulette" in front of a horrified bride and groom.
The police arrested a wedding guest, who had been giving a toast when he pretended he was playing the deadly game with a gun.
According to the Daily Mail, the guest claimed that he thought that the gun was entirely empty.
But then he gave the gun to another guest, who in his turn also fired the handgun against his head - and dropped to ground as a rubber bullet exploded into his skull.
And the video of the incident has sparked horror after being posted on the web.
The unnamed man's condition was later described as "very poor" after doctors removed a bullet from his skull.
He suffered brain damage and paralysis, according to Russian reports.
The man who produced the handgun at the Astrakhan wedding was arrested.
"I wanted to perform my party trick. I expected lots of applause after I did it and never guess someone would repeat it," the Herald Sun quoted him as saying.
He insisted he had taken out all the bullets before doing his party "trick".
The police said that the man is due to appear in court over the incident. (ANI)
