The Grant County Sheriff’s Office assisted in rescuing a man who investigators say shot himself in a hunting accident.

Sheriff Nate Dreckman said Clayton County authorities contacted Grant County on Sunday, informing them of a hunting accident near Wyalusing State Park where someone was shot in the arm and leg.

Dreckman said a man and his wife were duck hunting, and while the man got back into the boat from the shore, his gun went off once — hitting him in both an arm and a leg.

Dreckman said first responders from Bagley and a private boat reached the man and his wife, bringing them to a boat landing where he was taken to a hospital by Medflight.
