A teenager in northwest Iowa got hurt really badly in a hunting accident last weekend. The teen was with friends in Spring Run Wildlife Management Area in Dickinson County, Iowa, when they got shot around 8:30 on Saturday morning, as reported by KUOO Radio.
The individual, whose identity remains undisclosed by authorities, was transported to a Sioux Falls hospital via an air ambulance. Although the police have refrained from revealing the victim’s name, family and friends have come forward with the information. The person in question is Joseph Salmon, a senior at Okoboji High School.
According to a GoFundMe campaign set up by his aunt, Salmon had been out hunting with friends when a tragic incident occurred, resulting in a gunshot wound to his head. Following the incident, he was promptly transported to Sioux Falls Hospital, where he underwent surgical treatment.
In a recent update shared on the GoFundMe page by his aunt, it was reported that Salmon had been put into a medically induced coma. There’s some positive news, though, as he has shown signs of progress by displaying increased mobility in his legs and the ability to squeeze his hands.

Numerous initiatives have been initiated to provide financial assistance for Salmon’s medical bills. These include organizing a fundraising event at the Ruthven Locker, selling t-shirts to raise funds, and establishing a dedicated benefit account at Liberty National Bank.
If you know the name Salmon, it’s because he’s one of the five guys who saved an old man and his dog from Lake Okoboji. This happened when a Jeep went into the icy water while trying to pass under a bridge. Salmon and the other four guys were praised for being heroes that day.
