Apr 23, 2012, 5:39 PM

BUNNELL, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a woman has been hospitalized after her boyfriend accidentally shot her in the legs during a hog-hunting trip in north Florida.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s office says Steven Egan was in a tent with Lisa Simmons when he saw a hog nearby and shot at it Saturday evening. The Daytona Beach News-Journal (
http://bit.ly/I5Ap0L) reported Egan told authorities he thought he hit the hog and left the tent to search for it. The sheriff’s statement said he heard a noise, thought it was the hog and fired in that direction.

Deputies say Simmons was hit in both legs by a bullet and was in serious condition after surgery. Egan told authorities he didn’t know Simmons had left the tent and was in the woods.

Both are 52.
