EASTON, Md. (AP/WBOC)- An Eastern Shore waterfowl hunter is in stable condition after a dead goose fell from the sky and knocked him unconscious.

Fifty-one-year-old Robert Meilhammer of Dorchester County was hunting with three other people shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday when one of them fired at a flock of Canada geese overhead in Easton, near the Miles River on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Maryland Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson said a falling goose hit Meilhammer, knocking him out and causing head and facial injuries.
 
When he came to, he knew who he was, but "little else," according to a Natural Resources police officer.
 
The agency tweeted Friday that Meilhammer was in stable condition and awaiting more tests at Baltimore's Shock Trauma Center.
