GASPORT — A 15-year-old male who shot himself in the foot while hunting Saturday was taken to Medina Memorial Hospital for treatment.

According to a Niagara County Sheriff's Office report, the teen had set his 12-gauge Remington 1100 shotgun against a tree with the barrel facing the ground. When he attempted to pick his shotgun back up, it slipped and fell to the ground. He reached for the shotgun on the ground, but as he was picking it up, the shotgun slipped out of his hand again. As the shotgun fell to the ground, the teen accidentally grabbed it near the trigger causing a shell to discharge. The birdshot pellets struck him on his right foot.

The teen's brother and two friends assisted in carrying him to their vehicle. They first drove to the boy's house to get his insurance card. After getting the insurance card, they transported him to Medina Memorial Hospital.

The firearm which was documented onto a property management form was transferred to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The case was forwarded to the NCSO Criminal Investigation Bureau.
