According to the Kennebec Journal, a Maine man from Industry has been hospitalized following an apparent hunting accident that happened in the Maine woods last weekend.

The KJ is reporting that David Dorr, 66 of Industry, had been in the woods hunting with a friend in the small Maine town of Starks. Dorr's friend, a woman from Rhode Island in her 60s, stepped off the path and into the woods to flush out some birds.

It was at this time that the woman allegedly fired at a bird that flew up, however Dorr was in the way of the shot and took shotgun pellets to the face, chest and arm the Kennebec Journal is reporting.

Following the incident, Dorr was transported to the town of Madison via ambulance where he was then taken by LifeFlight helicopter to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center, according to the Kennebec Journal.

Mark Latti, a spokesman for Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, told the Kennebec Journal that there were no charges filed against the woman, however since the investigation is still ongoing, they were not prepared to release her identity.
