An area organization accepting donations on behalf of the family has identified the name of the child who was killed in a hunting accident on Sunday, November 20.  Unimaginable Hope says 11-year-old Easton Thom was the victim of the hunting accident in  Green Lake County.   The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said a 41-year-old man attempted to unload his firearm while it was placed in the back seat of a vehicle when the  firearm discharged, striking Thom in the chest. Officials say the boy was flown by helicopter to a hospital, where he died.  Thom’s death was one of six incidents across the state of Wisconsin on opening weekend, double the number of opening weekend incidents in 2021.
