MASON COUNTY, Mich. (WZZM) - A 10-year-old Wyoming girl was flown to the hospital after her 11-year-old brother accidentally shot her in the eye with a pellet gun.

The incident happened Saturday afternoon at a campsite on the Pere Marquette River east of Custer Road, according to the Mason County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say that the family was camping when the boy picked up the pellet gun and the gun accidentally discharged.  The pellet appeared to enter the girl's face, just below her eye.
