The wounded hunter, who firefighters and rescuers carried out of wood with a stretcher, has reportedly passed.
The hunter, in around his sixties, sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound after accidentally shooting a hunting rifle in the vicinity of the Jvari municipality wood, Tsalenjikha. He dialed 112 for help.
They tried to transport the hunter with a border police helicopter, but severe weather prevented them from doing so. The injured man's health condition was critical.
