Hunter Wounded in Shooting Mishap

November 28, 2003

Chester, NY

A 39-year-old Ulster County man was flown to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla after suffering a gunshot wound to the right thigh yesterday morning, Town of Chester police said.

Curt Cabrera, 39, of Marlboro, suffered a wound from a 30-30 rifle shortly before 10 a.m. in the woods off Tetz Lane, between Chester and Florida.

Police said Cabrera was bow hunting when he was shot by a 17-year-old boy from Warwick who was hunting with his father. Cabrera was about 75 feet away from the teen when he was shot.

The shooting is being investigated by Chester town police and state Environmental Conservation police. No charges had been filed as of last night. Cabrera was in stable condition at Westchester after being flown to the hospital by a Stat-Flight helicopter. Chester fire and ambulance volunteers, state police and Mobile Life Support Services responded to the call for help, in addition to the Chester and state conservation officers.
