Turkey Hunting Accident

(Safe turkey hunters)

A Connecticut man is recovering from shotgun wounds sustained in a hunting mishap in southern New York.

Authorities say Henry Gasiorowski, of Greenwich, Conn., was hit in the arm and back by shotgun pellets in the Friday morning accident at a hunting club in Forestburgh.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's office says the 60-year-old was sitting behind a decoy turkey making turkey calls when a hunting companion from Greenwich mistakenly opened fire.

Gasiorowski was hospitalized, but his injuries were not life-threatening. Police are investigating.
