Unfortunate? Absolutely.

But not exactly an accident. He violated two cardinal rules of gun handling: (1) he let the muzzle cover something he was not willing to destroy; and (2) he had his finger on the trigger when not on target and intending to shoot.

Good training and diligent practice can help us understand what to do and how to do it, and help assure that we do things correctly all the time -- even under great stress.
