December 13, 2012
A man falls from a hunting stand, then crawls for 12 hours
to safety with a broken leg.
It happened Saturday at a hunting camp near
Robersonville in Martin County.
Joe Liuzza said he was
hunting by himself when he fell 15 feet from a hunting stand.
Liuzza suffered a broken leg in the accident. His cell phone
also broke, leaving him no way to communicate the need for help.
Liuzza, who is deaf, fought his way for 12 hours to make it out
of the woods.
