High school track star Michael Tiger went for a run on a trail near his school with two teammates last Friday afternoon. Nothing was out of the ordinary...until the group saw a deer and then heard the boom of a gunshot.

The three Massachusetts students started shouting immediately so the hunters would realize they were in the area, but then Michael felt a stinging sensation in his leg. Once he looked down, he saw blood.
Thankfully, Michael's father Bernie Tiger says his wounds aren't too serious and he should make a full recovery. The Old Rochester Regional High School runner's leg still has the bullet in it, but he'll see a specialist soon to have it removed. Luckily the slug didn't hit any bone, arteries, or major blood vessels.

"The doctors feel pretty certain that there's a good chance, given where it's located, that this will not affect him in the long term," Mr. Tiger said.

Feel better soon, Michael!
