A young bull rider from Brandon who was stomped on yesterday at the Heartland Rodeo Finals in Grunthal has no major injuries.
Rod Gladue, President of the Heartland Rodeo Association says Cole Chapman is approximately 10 or 11 years old and explains what happened late yesterday afternoon.
"We had a young guy that went down and a steer stepped on him. The medics that were there did a wonderful job of taking care of him and he had some pain so they decided to call STARS to take him in for further tests."
Gladue says STARS arrived on scene very quickly and landed in a nearby soccer field. Chapman was air lifted by STARS to the children's hospital in Winnipeg.
"They did a pile of tests, there's no internal bleeding, no damage and he went home last night."
Gladue notes Chapman suffered a mild concussion which he adds is fortunate considering the situation. Gladue says he expects to see Chapman back in the arena riding steers again next year.
