A 51-year old East Berlin man was taken by Life Star to Hartford
Hospital Friday morning after being wounded in the lower left leg
while deer hunting off Beckley Road in Berlin.
Police said the man was in a heavily wooded area on private
property with his stepson and a friend. Police said they believe his
stepson accidentally shot him.
The victim had a tourniquet on his leg for more than 20 minutes,
officials said. The injury appears to be non-life threatening.
Crews from East Berlin, Berlin and South Kensington Fire
Departments assisted Berlin police.
