MANİSA - Anatolia News Agency
AA photoA man who went partridge hunting in the Aegean province of Manisa shot his friend by mistake after the latter played a partridge call on his cell phone today.
Mustafa Uyar, 47, and Emrah Gök, 35, had gone hunting together in Manisa's Karaçam range but separated from each other as they started looking for game.
Uyar played the sound of a partridge call recorded on his cell phone in order to attract his prey. Gök, who heard the partridge call but could not see Uyar due to the foliage between them, fired his shotgun at the source of the bird call, unknowingly shooting his friend.
Uyar, who suffered injuries to his head and body, was taken to Manisa Merkez Efendi State Hospital.
