August Schmidt Dies at Hospital

The hunting victim was August Schmidt, 27, of Sawyer, accidentally shot at 11 o'clock Sunday morning by his cousin, Henry Schmidt, 32, also of Sawyer.

Schmidt died at Mercy hospital at 5 o'clock this morning.

The accident occurred while the two men were hunting rabbits near Sawyer. It was reported that the victim was struck squarely in the back by a shotgun charge fired at close range when a rabbit jumped up between the two men as they tramped through a field.

Henry Schmidt rushed his wounded kinsman to the office of Dr. A.W. Corey in New Troy, who administered first aid. He was then brought to the Mercy hospital in Benton Harbor, where Dr. Corey and Dr. R.G. Allen of St. Joseph did their utmost to pull him through.

The deceased, victim of the county's first hunting accident this season, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Schmidt, Sawyer. In addition to his parents, he is survived by two brothers and three sisters.
