Torrey, N.Y. — 16-year-old was accidentally shot in the face by his younger brother while the boys were out turkey hunting on Saturday morning in Yates County.
Caleb Fox, of Sherman Street in Penn Yan, was out hunting with his 12-year-old brother David Fox, at approximately 6 a.m. on farm land at 954 City Hill Road in the Town of Torrey when the incident occurred, according to the Yates County Sheriff’s Office.
While they were hunting, David Fox thought he saw a turkey walking through a wooded area and fired. The moving object turned out to be his brother, who was struck in the face and right shoulder by pellets.
Caleb Fox was treated at the scene by Penn Yan Ambulance, and then flown to Rochester’s Strong Memorial Hospital for further treatment.
The state Department of Environmental Conservation also responded to the scene, and are investigating the accident.
