Suffolk rescue workers responded to 250 Bott Lane on Wednesday evening after a hunter was found on the ground in the woods.

The 77-year-old man was found about 5:35 p.m., city spokeswoman Debbie George said. He was not breathing and had apparently suffered a heart attack, though that was not confirmed, she said.

Bott Lane is between Holland and Whaleyville, near the intersection of Vicksburg Road and O’Kelly Drive.
