12-year-old boy died of suffocation when hunting
COFFEE SPRINGS, Alabama -- Kade Justin Bradberry, the 12-year-old boy
found dead in Geneva County on Saturday during a hunting trip, died of
suffocation, though the exact circumstances of his death are not clear, the
Coffee County coroner told the Dothan Eagle.
Coffee County Coroner Robert Preachers said Bradberry's official cause of
death is asphyxiation of the chest and shoulders. Preachers told the Dothan
Eagle that when he found Bradberry, a strap or harness often used by hunters
who hunt from tree stands was wrapped around Bradberry and somehow caught in
the Gator the boy was riding.
