16-year old Baker Felix was in a canoe, duck hunting, with two 18-year olds near Iron, Minnesota, when he was unintentionally shot by his brother with a shotgun.

From an article:

A rural Eveleth youth has been injured in a duck hunting accident in northeastern Minnesota. 
The Mesabi Daily News of Virginia reports that 16-year-old Baker Felix was hunting Saturday in a canoe on Elbow Lake in Iron with his brother, 18-year-old Bryten Felix, also of rural Eveleth, and 18-year-old Olaf Walkky, of Britt. 
A flock of ducks flew over and the teens stood up to shoot, resulting in the canoe rolling and taking water. The St. Louis County sheriff's office says Bryten Felix fell backward and tried to catch himself. The shotgun he was holding discharged, and the blast hit his brother, Baker Felix, in the knee. 
Baker Felix was taken by ambulance to a Duluth hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. The incident is under investigation.
