Hunter Recovering After Shooting Own Leg
Bridgeton -- Timmy Long of Bridgeton has come home from the hospital
after shooting himself in the leg almost three weeks ago. Long says he
thought he heard a deer and quickly loaded his gun before climbing a deer
stand in the blueberry fields of Bridgeton. He says as he reached for the
gun at the top of the stand he hit the trigger.
Long says a bullet went through his thigh and he was soon in a helicopter
headed for Pitt County Memorial Hospital. He's now home helping to take care
of his son before going back to work. Long also says he has his rifle back
and plans to go hunting again before the end of deer season.
