A policeman's gun fired accidentally during a safety demonstration at a Henan Province kindergarten this morning, slightly injuring five people, the Henan Business Daily reported.

The incident happened about 10 am at Haiwen Experimental Kindergarten in Zhengdong New Area in Zhengzhou, capital of Henan Province, as children staged a performance for the coming International Children's Day. The five injured, including four parents and one child, were taken to the hospital but suffered only slight skin injuries.

Officers from the Zhengdong Police Station went to the kindergarten to offer a lesson in safety precaution, and the accident happened as a policeman was showing the equipment. When the gun fired, pieces of concrete hit by the bullet flew up and scratched the arms and legs of four parents and a child.

The school facility is the largest private kindergarten in Zhengzhou City.
