Shooting Accident Near Bundaberg

Arthur Loeskow, the eight year old son of Mr and Mrs Loeskow, of Bororen, was the victim of a serious shooting accident to-day (our Bundaberg correspondent advised last night). It appears that while out duck shooting with some mates a shot gun carried by one of the boys was accidentally discharged, and Loeskow, who was standing some distance away, received the whole charge in his shoulder and head.

The boy was able to proceed home and appraise his mother of the occurence. He was brought to Bundaberg by the mail train to-night, and conveyed to a private hospital by the Ambulance Brigade. Efforts were made at the hospital to locate and extract the pellets, and to-night the boy was reported to be doing as well as could be expected.
