Shot hunter bled for hours before help came

Postby wayno » Tue 01 Apr, 2014 12:12 pm

A 22-year-old Hamilton man with a gunshot wound in his chest lay on the ground of a Bay of Plenty forest for four hours while his father gave him first aid and his brother ran for help.

The Hamilton father and his two sons were hunting in isolated bush near Motu about 10am when the 22-year-old was shot from about 40m away with a high-powered rifle by one of the others.

Seems target identification was sorely lacking in this case.
