That's really tragic. Imagine as a parent having to live with that for the rest of your life.

I realise we don't have all the details, but one would expect that if you take your kid out hunting, being stupid is not an option.

Transplant patients sometimes take on part of their donors’ personalities.

Rule number one. Always keep your kid in sight and never let him in front of you. Especially because there might be other hunters.

Also, don't actually load until you are where you will be hunting.  Walking through brush or over broken ground is dangerous without adding accidental discharge into the equation.

Neurons hold your memory-personality. Not organ cells. 

People might act different because their microbiomes are out of whack from anti-rejection drugs and antibiotics, but organ cells don't hold experiences-personalities

They is a paranormal trend who say that Transplant patients sometimes take on part of their donors’ personalities.

It sounds like woocrap. I know plenty of them and they don't. 

When you've been seeing a cardiologist and urologist for 30 years you meet many transplant patients.

Nope, second hand stories and urban myths. Then you have a lot of paranormal writers who just want to make things up. 

My grandfather was a well known rogue "Medicine Man" who had a little majick shop. I've seen it all, done it all when it came to the paranormal.

99 percent was hokey.
