CLUNE – An infant blinded by a hunter’s stray bullet that came through his living room window has returned to his western Pennsylvania home.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ( ) reports Shayne Iverson returned home near Saltsburg on Wednesday after spending more than two months in Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

The boy was 6 days old when his father, 42-year-old Jeremie Iverson, was cuddling the boy on their couch about 7 p.m. Sept. 25. Doctors have said the boy likely survived because the bullet that hit his head exited through his eye socket rather than hitting his brain.

Indiana County District Attorney Pat Dougherty has said the hunter had an agricultural deer control permit. No charges have been filed, though investigators have continued to review whether game regulations or other laws were violated.
