MI: Doctors remind hunters to be safe

November 14, 2012

From WZZM13.com

Each year, they say, hunting accidents lead to spinal cord injuries -- even death.
At Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital in Grand Rapids, Mark Celeskey is making progress in his recovery.  He was paralyzed three weeks ago when he fell out of his tree stand in Northern Michigan.
"I wouldn't wish this upon anybody," says Celesky, who was not wearing a safety harness at the time of his accident.
"Any other time, if I was in a stand bow hunting, I would of had a harness on, but I was in a rifle stand with rails all around," he says.
Celesky says, at the time he thought he was safe.  Instead, he fell 16 feet.
