Thats sad anytime anything like this happens. Sadly this happens all the time every hunting season. I wish that they'd come up with a safety system to stop a gun from falling. I just bought a hunter safety system. They are really nice, and they have a few pockets too. I know they are a little expensive but they are worth the price. I really wish this stuff would be cheaper, maybe there'd be less accidents. That ways people could afford them.

There is also a little gadget on guns called a "SAFETY" . A lot of folks dont use it but when their gun goes off , they usually say they had the safety on and it buts have snagged on something . People have a difficult time admitting to their own stupidity !
I feel sympathy for the above mentioned family !
