After the two finished turkey hunting together, they put their guns into the back of the grandfather’s truck.

While they were loading the car, a 9mm gun was tossed into the back of the truck, which caused it to fire and hit the child in the head area, Seabolt reported.

The grandfather did not have cellular reception to call first responders, so he put the wounded child into the truck and drove to a different area to call 911.

The sheriff said that an ambulance was able to meet the grandfather later alongside a road.
