NORTON, Mass. — The Norton woman severely injured by a hunter while she was walking her dogs in the woods near her home is out of the hospital.
Cheryl Blair went home on Monday after 10 surgeries and a stint in a rehabilitation hospital required to repair her pelvis which was shattered when she was shot by an off-duty state trooper on New Year’s Eve.
Blair’s husband, Jim, says his wife is happy to be home but “exhausted” and is not going to give interviews until the investigation into the shooting is complete.
The man who shot the 66-year-old woman, John Bergeron, has said he thought he was shooting at a deer. He has expressed remorse and has not faced any sort of punishment. State environmental officials are still investigating.
