IRAQ — The horrifying moment a wedding guest accidentally shot a man in the head as he fired celebratory gunshots into the air has been captured on film.

The footage, filmed at an unknown location in Iraq, depicts a joyful scene which quickly turns to devastation, the Mirror reported.

A man with an AK-47 is seen pointing the assault rifle into the air and firing a burst of shots one-handed, before losing control of the weapon and shooting an unknown victim standing directly in front of him.

Firing celebratory shots into the air is a Middle Eastern wedding tradition that can sometimes lead to tragic circumstances.

In 2012 more than 20 guests at a wedding in Saudi Arabia died after celebratory shots brought down an electric cable, the Mirror reports.

The video is one of several similar wedding shootings from the Middle East uploaded online in recent years.
