Justin Jeffries of Cole Camp, Mo., died Saturday from injuries suffered while competing in the Allen County Fair Rodeo.
Jeffries, 22, was attempting to go eight seconds atop the bull 8-Ball of the C.K. McKellips Rodeo Company, Raymore, Mo.
The bull bucked Jeffries off and the cowboy hit the ground on his back. The bull’s hind hooves hit Jeffries in the chest and stomach before arena personnel could get the 1,700-pound bull away from Jeffries.
