Bob Bracy

QUECHEE, Vt. (WCAX) An admired educator was critically injured over the weekend in a deer-hunting accident.

Bob Bracy is the headmaster the Mid Vermont Christian School in Quechee.

Saturday morning, Bracy was hunting alone in Pomfret. He got a deer and was dragging it out when he fell off a cliff at least 75-feet high. Bracy broke many bones, including vertebrae.

Bracy's friend and school board chair tells us the headmaster waited at least 90 minutes in the cold to be rescued. Crews had to cut down trees to reach him.

Bracy is now undergoing treatment at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
