GA: Perry man dies on hunting trip

Perry man dies on hunting trip

A 20-year-old Perry man died Saturday while on a hunting trip with friends, according to the Twiggs County Sheriff's Office.

Friends returned from the woods at about 7:25 p.m. and found Travis Roughton on the floor of an RV not breathing, said Lt. Robert Rodgers.

The group called 911. A deputy performed CPR until first responders arrived, but Roughton was declared dead, Rodgers said.

The friends told deputies Roughton fell at about 10:30 a.m. outside the RV, but appeared to be OK, he said.

There's no indication of foul play, but an autopsy is being performed because of Roughton's age, Rodgers said.

"It just appears to be a tragic accident," he said.
