One Hurt in Hunting Accident
A Newburgh man is recovering following a weekend hunting accident.
Indiana Conservation Officers say William McCune was deer hunting Saturday
morning near Princeton in Gibson County when his 44-caliber handgun went
off. The round hit McCune in the inner part of his upper right leg and it
went out the other side of his leg. He was able to climb down from his tree
stand and contact his hunting partner, who called for help. Investigators
say they aren't sure why the firearm went off.
