A 23-year-old Eagle Mountain woman was in fair condition Sunday
afternoon after she accidentally shot herself while rabbit hunting
with her husband in Cedar Valley.
The couple was hunting seven miles south of State Route 73 in an
area south of Cedar Fort when the unidentified woman inadvertently
shot herself in the mid-thigh with a .22-caliber firearm, said Utah
County Sheriff's deputy Sgt. Lane Critser.
The bullet, he said, went completely through her leg.
A sheriff's dispatcher said the woman initially dialed 911 on her
cell phone before handing the phone off to her husband. The call for
help was received at about 2:20 p.m., Critser said. The victim was
treated at the scene by Cedar Fort and Eagle Mountain medical
personnel before being transported by ambulance to American Fork
"Medical personnel advised she was in fair condition," Critser
