"Jaktkompisen thought he shot a wild boar. "
"But the shot went straight into the Dance in the groin and out through the anus."
"I didn't think I had a chance to meet me," says Dan Eriksson, 47."
"On the two way radio will call that a hunter in the Dan Eriksson's hunting down a moose in the woods around Östervåla initiates the hunting team in a search on the skadeskjutna the heifer."
"It is the day before new year's eve 2017, the temperature is a few degrees below zero and the snow is a hard layer of shermen. Dan and trained gun dog, Emma, goes the fastest way to jaktkamraten, via a forest road."
"Farther on the way, Dan is an older hunters from the hunting party."
" I will be surprised to see him there. On collection we had talked about that he would sit down at a clearing, now he had moved on to the road."
"It is 275 metres between them and the hunter supports the rifle on my knees and fires a shot towards Dan. "
"as soon As he hears the bang understand Dan that he had been shot. "
"– My sense is that I must escape, it can get a shot. But the leg does not work. "
"He's going six, seven meters, then he falls together. "
"I have been shot, I've been shot. You need to call an ambulance”, yells Dan on the two way radio."
"He feels after the body was in - and utgångshålet sitting. "
"– When I pluck up the pants, I see the entrance hole at the groin. I put my hand down the back of your pants and get with me a piece of the intestine, feces, and blood."
"In retrospect, the hunter told us that he saw a black lump and that he was convinced that it was a wild boar, which he aimed and fired at. "
"Trying to stop the flow of blood"
"After many years in the hockey game, Dan has an eye on the body's anatomy and know that the shot entered near the aorta. The bullet met him, with the caliber 30-06, is designed to do as much damage as possible."
"– Somewhere so relaxes you and waiting, I didn't think I had a chance to meet me. "
"But the instinct for survival kicks in and Dan press into the heel of jaktkängan as far as it goes in the butt and a fist in the injury at the groin. So he sits nestled in the anticipation of help."
"It is not easy for SOS to pinpoint exactly where they are. Technology mess up, and they can not provide the exact coordinates for its position. Deltidsbrandmännen in Östervåla also get the alarm, one of them knows Dan well and for him trying to Dan describe how to get to the place."
"at the same time, he takes the decision to send out the hunting party on the road so that they can guide help right. "
"– and I was left alone. It was not good. Damn. Have you had anxiety at some point so know how it feels. I remember that the snow tossed and how quiet it was."
"It takes an hour before help arrives and Dan are taken to the Academic in Uppsala for treatment. Where he will remain for 14 days."
"the Goal is that he will be completely recovered, but over a year after the event, Dan has still stomipåse and it remains surgeries and treatments to undergo. "
"– I have constant aches and I'm working on as usual, so rises the ache. It has been a big change but I still think it is good, but it is clear that I would like to get rid of the stoma, " he says."
"Yet he has landed in the realization that there is no sense to be angry and hateful against the hunter who shot him and who was sentenced to community service by the district court. The judgment has been appealed to the court of appeal."
"Several times, Dan has been out on the firing ranges with a kaffetermos just to get used to the sound of the shot. "
"– this with the shoots have taken a long time, I have worked a huge amount with it. In the beginning reacted to the body the same as when I got shot, I got a cramp. "
"Want to change"
"He has become accustomed to talk about the event and is often asked to speak for the hunting party and in the other jaktsammanhang. Gefle Dagblad was the first to tell you about the Dance experience."
"– For me it has been a part of the processing. I have landed in that this is a matter of extremely poor judgement. How can we change it out in the forest and the land? We need to be able to talk about bad judgment and have guidelines for how we do when the hunters are getting worse physically and mentally, and looks worse. We need to think about what plan we should have for them. "
