All I can say is my hat is off to this fine man and his partner.
Neither want any "praise" as "they just did what anyone would have done", notice the quotation marks.
It happened Sunday about 1:30. He shot himself in the groin and it exited through his rear end with a 10 gauge.
He was laying in the bottom of the boat and his boys came to my blind. It was really a terrible ordeal.
His two young sons played a very important role in him surviving. They maintained great composure and drove the boat to my blind so they played a big part.
My partner applied pressure while I went to get an ambulance they couldn't find the location we were at.
It was just by the grace of God the young man has survived he's going to have a long row to hoe.
They were putting up a pop-up blind and the gun fell over and discharge. Just an accident. I believe the extreme cold weather may help play a part in saving him from bleeding to death. He is in the Med. They are thinking about moving him into a semi-private room in a few days.
I just wanted to share the update and information.
Once again I am shown that some of the best people in the world hang out right here on tndeer.
