A Fresno woman was accidentally shot by a relative during a hunting outing near Big Sur in Los Padres National Forest, Monterey County Sheriff's deputies reported Monday.
Officials said Zoua Lo Xiong was shot about 10 a.m. Sunday at Bottchers Gap, about seven miles inland from Highway 1.
Deputies said Xiong was not wearing brightly colored safety gear and "blended into the scenery." The shooter did not realize his relative was in danger until she cried out, deputies said.
Xiong suffered wounds to the face, head, upper back and left arm, but was conscious and able to speak when she was taken to a local hospital, officials said.
