A 13-year-old boy has died after being shot accidentally in the head during a hunting accident in Spain.

The incident happened at the Santamaría farm in Villalba de los Alcores in Valladolid, according to emergency services.

An ambulance and a helicopter were scrambled, but medics confirmed the death of the boy by rifle shot at the scene.


The fatal accident happened shortly after 1pm yesterday (Saturday, October 13) at the farm, located about five kilometres east of Villalba de los Alcores.

According to sources close to the case, the grandfather of the deceased child is the owner of the El Rocío estate, also located in the municipality of Villalba de los Alcores and “very well known” in Valladolid.


  1. The boy who died was my good friend. He was a lovely person who made friends with all around him. He had come to my school in Ireland last year where he took part in the school musical. Everyone in the musical are devastated and very sad. I still can’t believe it.
