5-Day-Old Baby Shot In Head By Hunter’s Bullet Expected To Be Blind
The 5-day-old Pennsylvania boy wounded by a hunter’s stray bullet is expected to be blind as a result of the shooting.
According to the Associated Press, Stefanie Iverson says her son Shayne’s life was spared when the bullet exited through the orbital area – or eye socket – of his skull rather than hitting his brain.
At the time of the shooting, the newborn’s father was holding his baby when a bullet was propelled through a window of their home, striking the baby’s skull on September 25th.
According to Indiana County District Attorney Pat Dougherty, the hunter had an agricultural deer control permit when he fired the shot that wounded the baby at about 7:00 p.m. that day.
The shooting was deemed as likely accidental, but there is a question as to whether the hunter followed state regulations.
