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.
