The rodeo speaker activated the emergency response plan when the bull ran away, a statement from the rodeo association said that the staff of the first rapid response service rushed to the scene to help the victims
The incident occurred on the third day of the annual four-day rodeo.
“Beating the bull was an experience,” 15-year-old Jordan Greka told Redding Record Searchlight.
“Honestly, at the time I didn’t feel it because the adrenaline was jumping and I had to make decisions in a split second.”
The bull’s horn cut off his leg as the animal slipped through the arena’s VIP section. He waited in line to take advantage of the restroom after the shift ended when the bull jumped over the enclosure, rushing towards him.
Four people were spotted by paramedics and left before police were able to contact them, Reading Police Corporal Aaron Holeman said.
“The people who were injured were passers-by in the stands as well as people on the Sundial Bridge, so in both places,” Holleman said.
“I know at least one person was injured in the Sundial Bridge area. I don’t know if the other five were in the stands. I don’t know exactly what the breakdown was. “
The rodeo announcer activated an emergency response plan when the bull ran away, a statement from the rodeo association said first service officers rushed to the scene to help the victims.
“I’m under stress,” said 16-year-old Enterprise FFA sophomore Bradon Jones, who was 15 yards from his Greek friend when he was hit.
“It simply came to our notice then. (Greco) had to call me because he was nearby and I didn’t realize he had been hit. I saw the bull run. ”
The animal was finally caught near the Sundial Bridge, then put in a trailer and returned to the ranch.
The final rodeo on Saturday night will continue as planned, the Rodeo Association said.
