BLUE EARTH, Minn. - A hunting accident southeast of Mankato sent one juvenile to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries over the weekend.

Faribault County sheriff's office says five juveniles were duck hunting on Rice Lake Sunday morning when one of the kids' shotgun fell into the water.
The barrel of the gun was plugged with mud. A round was shot from the gun causing the end of the barrel to explode. As a result of the explosion, a piece of the barrel struck another young hunter in the group. That juvenile was taken to a hospital in Blue Earth before being airlifted to another hospital in Rochester.

The incident is under investigation.

No other information was released Monday.
