Two Hurt In Hunting Accidents

KSAL StaffJanuary 20, 2015

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.
