    Teen (Justin Lee Smith, 17) dies after being impaled by rifle in Mississippi hunting accident in

    https://ktla.com/news/nationworld/te...g-accident-in/

    A North Carolina teen died when his hunting stand shifted and he fell onto his rifle barrel, Mississippi authorities report.

    Justin Lee Smith, 17, of Supply, North Carolina, was in a ladder stand Saturday afternoon in the northwest part of the county near the Alcorn County line, Tishomingo County coroner Mack Wilemon told WTVA-TV.

    According to Wilemon, the stand apparently turned to one side, Smith fell 10 feet (3 meters) and was impaled. Smith was able to call 911 on his cellphone, but died shortly afterward, Wilemon said.

    A state wildlife agent is investigating.

    I'm having trouble picturing exactly how this happened, and how the rifle didn't just fall over. How was it standing perfectly upright for him to be impaled?

    My answer to you is bad luck. However, he may have left it like that in a stand while he climbed up to check for wildlife.

    My guess is he fell while holding the gun.

    I can't be the only one out here, I'm just not. Don't worry about it. Mind your fucking business.

    NC Teen Dies After Impaling Himself on His Own Rifle While Hunting

    https://toofab.com/2020/11/24/nc-tee...while-hunting/

    He managed to call 911 for help, but died shortly after making the call.

    A North Carolina teenager has died after being impaled on his own rifle.

    The freak accident occurred on Saturday when 17-year-old Justin Lee Smith was hunting just 200 yards from the road in Alcorn County.

    The boy was atop a hunting ladder stand when it shifted and turned to one side, WTVA reported.

    According to the coroner, he fell 10 feet to the ground and was impaled through the chest by the barrel of his own gun.

    Smith managed to call 911 for help using his cellphone, but died shortly after making the call.

    A state wildlife officer is investigating the accident.

    A GoFundMe set up to help the family revealed that because of a recent job change, a life insurance policy that would have covered the funeral expenses was deactivated.

    "It's never easy to lose someone, but to lose them so young is devastating," the organizer wrote. "The family thanks you again for any help and prayers."

    Statistics show that falls from elevated stands are now the most common cause of injuries and fatalities while hunting, far eclipsing firearm incidents or attacks by wildlife.

    And because most states only require firearm accidents to be reported, the number of unreported stand incidents is likely even higher again.

    One recent study showed that while the vast majority of deer gun and bow hunters use elevated stands, only 33 percent always use safety harnesses.
