On Tuesday January 15, 2019 a professional bull rider named Mason Lowe was bucked off his bull and stomped in the chest. This caused tremendous damage to his chest area. This 25-year-old bull rider was competing in the PBR chute out at the time of his injury.

Mason was towards the end of his run when he was bucked off of his bull. Lowe was attempting to get up when the bull he was riding named Hard Times stomped down on his chest. Lowe was able to get up and get out of the way. He made his way staggering towards the exit when he collapsed. Lowe was not able to survive the blow to the chest and died. His death was the first death in the 119-year history of the stock show in Denver.

 

Family friends and fans of mason returned to the Denver coliseum on Wednesday to celebrate his life and a stellar professional career. To begin the memorial the announcer said, “ It is with extremely heavy hearts that we share with you we truly have lost one of our own”. Lowe was ranked 18th in the world for bull riding at the time of his death.

Everyone got quiet, knew it was serious”
