IA - 11-year-old shoots father in hunting accident

CLUTIER, Iowa State officials say a Traer man has been injured while hunting pheasants in central Iowa.

Kurt Boerm was hit in the legs by pellets fired from a shotgun by his 11-year-old son Mitchell, at 9:30 a.m. yesterday (Tuesday).

Department of Natural Resources officer Brett Reece says the boy was shooting at a flying pheasant. He says dense fog may have been a factor contributing to the incident.

The accident occurred in Tama County.

The 39-year-old Kurt Boerm was taken to Covenant Hospital in Waterloo. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
