VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A bow hunter accidentally stabbed himself with an arrow while hiking in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest about 14 miles northeast of Mount St. Helens.

The Columbian reports (https://bit.ly/1vNMoJK) the man was walking through rough terrain Tuesday when an arrow fell out of his quiver and it somehow pierced a calf muscle.

The Volcano Rescue Team says rescuers began hiking to the injured man, but because of the remote forest location a helicopter was dispatched to airlift him to a hospital.
