IL - Bowhunter left hanging Man injured in deer hunting accident

12/10/2006
 
Anthony J. Latino, 53, of Robert, La., remains in good condition at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield after suffering fractures in a bizarre incident that left him hanging from a tree stand Thursday.

Marcelyn Love, a spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, said Latino was bowhunting about 1 1/2 miles from the village of Wrights, northeast of Carrollton, when he was attempting to climb a deer stand about 3:15 p.m. Thursday.

"He apparently got tangled up somehow as he was climbing the tree stand and slipped and was hanging from the tree," Love said. "He was able to use an arrowhead to cut himself loose, then fell to the ground, sustaining multiple fractures."
