HAUGHTON, La. (AP) - A spokesman for the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office says a 10-year-old boy has apparently stabbed himself in the stomach by accident while playing with a machete.

Lt. Bill Davis says the boy was being taken to University Health in Shreveport from Haughton, about 17 miles east-northeast of Shreveport.

He says the child was playing in woods 100 to 200 yards behind his house in Haughton when the accident occurred Wednesday. Deputies arrived on scene about 4:30 p.m. It was unclear when the accident happened.

Davis says he does not have any other details.
