At 2 am on October 26th of this year 63-year-old Colorado resident Sanford Rothman awoke to a loud bang. While sleepwalking, he had shot himself in the leg with the 9 mm handgun he kept on his nightstand! Mr. Rothman, who says he has no recollection of the incident, was treated at Boulder Community Hospital and subsequently released. Instances of sleepwalking can last anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 minutes. Typically sufferers do not recall the sleepwalking period since they are not truly conscious.
