Timothy Minnich, 105 Young St., Anna, was out hunting with his 13-year-old son Malachi. When they were finished for the night, Timothy stated he had opened the right rear door of his pick up truck and set the barrel of the gun on the back seat. He said he was in the process of clearing the weapon when his son opened the rear door on the other side of the truck, stepped in front of him and this is when the gun went off.

The round went went through the right upper edge of the left half of the rear bench seat. It traveled through the right half of the seat at about a 20 degree angle exiting out the bottom outer edge of the seat cover. The round struck the steel mounting frame on the right side of the seat.

It then struck Malachi in the front of his left thigh about half way between the knee and the hip joint and slightly out board of the center line of the thigh. There didn’t appear to be an exit wound and there was no bullet in the wound, only fragments of either the bullet or the metal of the seat frame or both.

Timothy transported Malachi to the hospital and he was then transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital. Malachi was awake and alert the entire time.
