APPLE VALLEY • Three months after a 15-year-old slipped and
accidentally shot his father in the leg during a family hunting
trip, an Apple Valley man will be honored for his role in helping to
save the father's life.
Broussinos made his way down the tricky terrain until he found a
teenage boy who told him he’d slipped, his gun had discharged and
his father had been shot. Heconfirmed the teen and his 12-year-old
brother had a tourniquet on the father’s thigh and told the boy he’d
go for help.
Satchell’s nephew is doing well now, he said, even walking
without crutches on a temporary prosthetic leg. He’ll be doing even
better when he’s fitted for his permanent leg, Satchell said.
