October 17, 2011

From Wanderer.com

On the morning of October 17, a hunter in Marion suffered a self-inflicted injury as a result of a bow and arrow misfire. The man was hunting in a wooded area off Parlowtown Road when the injury occurred. The hunter misfired the arrow and it penetrated his left foot, the Marion Police Department said.

According to Sergeant Neghelli, the hunter was injured and bleeding, but managed to drive himself less than a quarter of a mile to the Marion Police Department. “The injury was non-life threatening. However, an ambulance transport was required,” said Sergeant Neghelli.

Due to medical confidentiality, the hunter’s name was not released.
