On March 9, 1886, as Verne was coming home, his twenty five year old nephew, Gaston, with whom he had entertained lengthy and affectionate relations, charged at him with a gun. As the two wrestled for it, it went off. The second bullet entered Verne’s left leg. He never fully recovered. Gaston spent the rest of his life in an asylum, and the incident was hushed up by the media.
