Boy injures foot during hunting accident

An 11-year-old Des Moines boy suffered a foot injury Sunday evening while hunting deer southwest of Winterset, according to a press release from the Department of Natural Resources.

Maxwell Birmingham was hunting deer during the youth season with his grandfather, Harold Birmingham, also of Des Moines, when the muzzleloader rifle discharged, hitting him in the foot. He was sitting on the ground when the incident happened at approximately 6 p.m. Sunday, officials said.

Maxwell was taken to Madison County Memorial Hospital in Winterset then transferred to Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines. His injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.
