A woman has been arrested in the US after her one-year-old daughter was accidentally shot in the face by her two-year-old son.
Crystal Kinchen, 23, was arrested in Louisiana on Wednesday and faces a charge of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile, Baton Rouge Police said.
Sergeant L'Jean McKneely said the shooting happened on Tuesday night while the two children were alone in a car parked at a shopping centre.
Police said the two-year-old boy picked up a gun that was left in the vehicle, and it accidentally discharged and struck the one-year-old girl.
Mr McKneely said the family drove the child to the hospital rather than waiting for an ambulance.
The one-year-old is in a critical condition.
