EASTON, Md. (WJLA) A waterfowl hunter on Maryland’s Eastern Shore was knocked unconscious when a goose he shot fell from the sky.

Robert Meilhammer, 51, of Crapo, was with a hunting party Thursday near the Miles River in Easton when the group shot at a flock of Canada geese, according to a statement from the Maryland Natural Resources Police.

One goose fell about 90 feet and hit Meilhammer and knocked him out. He suffered head and facial injuries.

Talbot County Sheriff’s Office deputies and local EMS also responded to the scene. After they determined that he had a severe head injury, he was taken by ambulance to Easton Airport.

Maryland State Police airlifted Meilhammer to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. He was reported to be in stable condition Friday.

When Meilhammer regained consciousness, he was able to say who he was but he was “hazy about other details,” police said.
