SC: Hunter accidentally kills himself while on phone near St. Matthews

September 20, 2012

From TheT&D.com

ST. MATTHEWS — A hunter died Monday afternoon when his shotgun accidentally discharged while he was on the phone with his fiance.
 
David Young was apparently retrieving his shotgun while talking to his fiancee when the cellphone went silent.
 
The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office responded, Porth said. They found the 59-year-old Gaston man, “with no signs of life and with an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.”
 
Porth said it appears Young was by himself and that the gun may have accidentally discharged.
 
...it appears Young tripped and fell, suffering a shotgun blast to the chest.
