TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — Family members and friends are mourning the death of an 11-year-old
fifth grade student in Tuscaloosa County.  Hudson Fife was killed over the weekend in a hunting
accident in Dallas County.

Natasha Wilson is heartbroken, she has a special connection with the 11-year-old.  He was like
family and her son was his best friend.

“There are no words to describe how hard this is,” Wilson said. “He was so young and so full of life and he had a long life to live.”

Hudson Fife made a big impact on the life of Natasha Wilsons son Hunter Morgan.  The two were best friends.

“I just love him like a brother, he was everything to me he was my best friend.  I used to go to his house a lot and we would have the best time and I would bring my X box there and we would play video games then go outside and have fun,” Morgan said.

The 11-year-old attended school at Englewood Elementary school.  This week councilors are available to help classmates cope with the tragedy.  Sunday, Hudson Fife was with his family members and friends when he was accidentally shot and killed.  His sister Emma-Caroline Fife and her boyfriend found the 11-year-old with his rifle.

“Its easy to blame yourself but you can’t.” Fife said. “So me and him are just struggling with the 
last image that we saw of my brother.” 

Good family friend Natasha Wilson says she is going to help support the Fife family as much as
possible to help them get through this terrible ordeal.

“Just that we love them dearly, and we are so sorry that they are having to go through this,” Wilson said. “And as much as we love Hudson like our own we can’t even imagine what they are going through”.

Visitation for Hudson Fife is from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday at Valley View Baptist Church. The funeral service will be held Friday at 2 p.m. at Valley View Baptist Church.
