GERMAN FLATTS, N.Y. (WKTV) - State Police announced Wednesday
that an Ilion man was sent to the hospital following a hunting
accident in German Flatts earlier this month.
According to New York State Police, on November 19, Thomas M.
Vibbard, 59, of Ilion was located in a field off of Mortz Road with
a gunshot wound to his upper thigh, after being accidentally shot by
a fellow hunter.

with Vibbard or in the woods at the same time.
Vibbard was treated at the scene and sent to St. Elizabeth
