Young Wiley boy killed in hunting accident

Jan 10, 2011

Las Animas, Colo. — An 8-year-old Wiley boy was killed in a hunting accident Sunday, Jan. 9, in Bent County.

The Bent County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene of the hunting accident near county road 30 and GG on Sunday at about 9:37 a.m.

Hasty/McClave Ambulance personnel were on scene performing CPR on the victim, 8-year-old Reece Harbour, and they transported him to Prowers County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:25 a.m., according to a report from the Bent County Sheriff’s Department.

Bent County Sheriff’s deputies, along with personnel from the Colorado Division of Wildlife, conducted an investigation. Reece was duck hunting with his father and grandfather. It was determined that this death was an accident caused when the gun he was using had caught on a tamarisk bush and discharged, fatally wounding him.

Reece and his family are residents of Wiley and Reece attended Alta Vista School in Lamar.

The Bent County Sheriff’s Office extend their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Reece Harbour.
