GULF HAMMOCK, Fla. (UPI) -- Florida authorities said a paraplegic hunter accidentally shot himself in the foot with a crossbow, pinning him to the floor of his all-terrain vehicle.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said John Champion, 21, was hunting alone in his Polaris Ranger at the Fiber Factory Hunt Club in Gulf Hammock and accidentally fired a crossbow bolt through his left foot while attempting to cock the weapon, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

Champion was unable to free his foot and became struck in some brush while attempting to drive the Ranger.

He was assisted by other hunters and family members took him to Levy County paramedics. He was found to have suffered a puncture wound and several broken bones in his foot, the commission said.
