Associated Press

September 18, 2006--A Minnesota boy is recovering from injuries in a hunting accident over the weekend. The Fayette County sheriff's office says 12-year-old Michael Vang of Mounds View, Minnesota, was shot in the foot while squirrel hunting.

Authorities say he bent over the pick up a squirrel when his rifle went off, hitting him in the foot. The boy was hunting with his father and two others in the Volga River State Recreation Area near Fayette.

Vang was taken to a hospital in West Union and later transferred to St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota. The hospital says no information is available.
