Hunter shot himself while cleaning rifle

An Austrian hunter shot himself in the chest while trying to shake snow out of his rifle.

Hans Biedermeier, 27, was holding his rifle up to shake snow out of the barrel when it went off.

Luckily for Biedermeier, from Bad Vigaun, he was hunting with a friend who was able to get help.

He was taken to the nearest hospital, where doctors say he is in a stable condition.
