KNOWLTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. - A New Jersey state trooper used a computer cable and a decorative arrow to save the life of a man who accidentally shot himself.

Trooper Roy Sanchez created the makeshift tourniquet when he arrived on the scene Wednesday and found the man bleeding profusely from the gunshot wound to his leg.

Medical personnel arrived and applied a second tourniquet, along with clotting gauze to control the bleeding.

State Police say the man is in stable condition at a hospital.
