Corrigan school official seriously injured in hunting accident

A Corrigan-Camden high school official is fighting for his life following a hunting accident Saturday.

Corrigan ISD Superintendent Sherry Hughes said David Snyder fell out of his deer stand. After being rushed to a Lufkin hospital, he was transferred to a Houston hospital with a broken vertebrae and broken ribs.

"[I'm feeling] pretty overwhelmed. This is a very small school. We're very close knit. It's like a family. We met with the district staff this morning to kind of update them on where we were, what is going on with him and his wife and their children," Hughes aid. "We do feel like a family so when one person has something like this happen to them it impacts all of us. It has a ripple effect."

Hughes said he had back surgery on Monday and has no feeling in his extremities.
