A hunter who spent more than 24 hours in the woods after being
injured from a fall from a tree stand is in the intensive care unit
at Grand Stand Hospital.
Family members identify the
accident victim as Blaine Musgrove Jr., also known as Bo.
Musgrove went hunting in the woods behind his home in Geprgetown.
Initial reports indicated he went hunting at about 6:30 a.m.
Saturday but Cuthbertson said Sunday evening it was late Friday
afternoon when he left his home.
“Deputies entered the woods
behind the victim's house and located him within 10 minutes at
the bottom of his tree stand. The victim told deputies he fell from
his tree stand after falling asleep. The victim was alert and air
lifted to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center,” Cuthbertson states.
He reportedly suffered a broken leg and hip injuries.
