Lockport Teen Killed in Orleans County Hunting Accident

November 19, 2011

From DemocratAndChronicle.com

Another hunter was injured today when he fell from a tree stand in Leicester, Livingston County.

State Police in Canandaigua said Robert Miller, 70, of Portville, Cattaraugus County fell about 15 feet from a stand behind a home on New Road. An ambulance took him to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for broken ribs, a punctured lung and a cut to his face.

An investigation showed that Miller did not secure a safety strap on the stand and fell after shooting at a deer, said State Police Sgt. Jason Haag.
