Man Accidentally Shoots Girlfriend Mistaken For A Hog

A Florida couple was on a weekend camping trip that ended in an airlift to the emergency room. Fifty-two-year-old Steven Egan was hunting with his girlfriend Lisa Simmons in the northern part of the state when he mistook her for a hog and shot her.

The mistake was not actually related to her appearance. Rather, Egan had earlier shot at a hog that continued to evade him. He reportedly instructed Simmons to at their campsite while he pursued the evasive animal, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. However, Simmons ventured away from the campsite, apparently searching for oranges that had fallen from nearby .


When Egan heard rustling in the woods, he fired in her direction without first making visual confirmation with his intended target. Instead, Simmons was struck in the legs by a .30-caliber bullet from Egan’s gun. She was airlifted to the nearby Halifax Health Medical Center where she is listed as being in serious condition. Authorities say they aren’t planning to charge Egan for the accidental shooting.
