Two Hurt In Hunting Accidents

Associated Press - January 20, 2015 6:35 am

Authorities say two people are in the hospital after they were injured in two separate hunting accidents on the same day.

According to Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, a 15-year-old male was shot in the leg while turkey hunting with three other boys on Sunday.

Morse says a shotgun accidentally discharged and hit the teen. He was taken to a Topeka hospital and is in stable condition.

The sheriff didn’t give a specific age for the boy carrying the shotgun but says he’s no older than 10.

Less than five hours after the first incident another person was injured after falling from a tree stand.

The male, whose name or age wasn’t released, was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition.
