In Prospect, emergency crews rushed to fly out a man who allegedly shot himself in the head with a gun.

According to officials, late Friday night, Josh Jordan -- who was camping in Prospect -- accidentally shot himself in the face.

We are told by family friends, he was cleaning his gun when it misfired.

"Josh shot himself, I guess through here, and through the eyeball or something.. I don't know. "

After a hike out from the secluded area where he was staying, Jordan was flown out by Mercy Flights.

At this time his condition is unknown.

Now, at the scene, fire officials told us they are preparing for more emergencies this holiday weekend as people travel outdoors.
