VANCOUVER, Wash. - A bow hunter accidentally stabbed himself with an arrow while hiking in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest about 14 miles northeast of Mount St. Helens.
The Columbian reports the man was walking through rough terrain Tuesday when an arrow fell out of his quiver and it somehow pierced a calf muscle.
The Volcano Rescue Team says rescuers began hiking to the injured man, but because of the remote forest location a helicopter was dispatched to airlift him to a hospital.
