FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. - A 52-year-old Flagler County woman is recovering after her boyfriend accidentally shot her in the legs during a hog-hunting trip, according to officials.
The couple was on a hunting trip at the Cowart Hunt Camp. Flagler County Sheriff's deputies say 52-year-old Steven Egan was inside a tent on Saturday night when he said he heard a noise in the woods, thought it was the hog and fired in that direction.
Instead, it was his girlfriend Lisa Simmons.
Deputies said Simmons was struck with a .30-caliber bullet in both legs and was taken to Halifax Health Medical Center in serious condition. Authorities said she underwent surgery.
No further details were immediately available.
