10-year-old Texas boy dies after horse falls on him during rodeo

A 10-year-old boy in Texas died in a freak rodeo accident on Sunday after the horse he was riding fell on him, a report said.

Youngster Legend Williamson was riding the horse during the Texas Junior High Rodeo at the Beauregard Parish Covered Arena when the animal is believed to have either suffered a brain aneurysm or a heart attack, authorities told KPLC.

The fatal tragedy took place in the warm-up pen, where the horse suddenly reared up and fell on the child, Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office Chief Detective Sylvester Denmond told the news outlet.
