BRADDYVILLE, Iowa (AP) – A Grinnell man has been hospitalized after shooting himself in the foot while hunting in Page County.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says 35-year-old Benjamin Parker’s gun discharged Saturday afternoon after becoming tangled in some bags he was carrying. A slug went into his right foot.

Officials say Parker was taken to a Des Moines hospital. His injuries aren’t believed to be life threatening.
