RCMP Corp. Jon Stuart said police got a call Sunday night about a domestic assault in the community of Maple Bay, near Duncan, B.C.
When officers arrived they found a man with an arrow in his chest.
The father was taken by ambulance to Cowichan District Hospital before being airlifted to Victoria General Hospital, where he's listed in critical but stable condition.
His 50-year-old son was arrested and will face charges.
Stuart says the call about the attack came from the victim's other son. (CKAY)
