On November 24th, 18-year-old Andrew Pfaffe of Durand got hurt because of a deer hunting accident. But luckily, his friends were with him - and sprung into action.

"We were all doing a deer drive together," Andrew said. "We were walking back to the truck because one of my buddies just shot a deer. We were walking with our handguns out, but we decided to holster them. It just went off as it was going into the holster."

Andrew says the bullet went in through his hip and came out about 4 to 5 inches below his knee - hitting a major artery in his leg.

"I thought I was gonna' die," he said.
