Bobby Haug, 13, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gearhart Haug of Minneapolis, was fatally wounded Friday morning at the home of the Arthur Helgersons five miles south of Postville. The boy had been spending the summer at the Helgersons, his uncle and aunt. The Helgersons' son David, about the same age, and Bobby were playing upstairs in the Helgerson house. Mrs. Helgerson was downstairs about 9:00 a.m. when she heard a shot and rushed upstairs. The boys had found a loaded .22 rifle. The gun discharged and the bullet struck Bobby in the right eye and passed through his head. The wounded boy was rushed to a doctor in Clermont and then was taken to the Postville hospital, where he died about 10:00 a.m.
