Test of bullet-proof vest goes wrong

A 25-year-old South Carolina man who put on a bullet-proof vest and asked to be shot was killed Wednesday morning.

Now 18-year-old girl is charged in the death.

Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown said Blake Randall Wardell was hanging around with some other people in a garage when he put on a bullet-proof vest they had found.

Wardell asked his friend, Taylor Ann Kelly, of Anderson to shoot him.  She fired, and the shot from the small caliber weapon went above the Kevlar of the vest and into Wardell’s heart, killing him, McCown said.
