Turkey hunting accident sends victim to hospital

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

MINDEN - State and local officials are investigating a hunting accident Sunday that left a Montgomery County man with serious injuries.

Tom Fahy of Nelliston was listed in serious condition at Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown following a 7 a.m. shooting that authorities described as accidental.

The shooting happened in woods off Walts Road in the town of Minden, according to Maureen Wren, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

Fahy was turkey hunting with a friend, Dale Fisher of Fort Plain. Fisher allegedly fired his gun at a turkey but hit Fahy. The location of Fahy's wound was not available.

The men's ages also were not available.

The shooting is being investigated by the DEC and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department, Wren said.
