Mason Lowe, a 25-year old professional bull rider from Exeter, Missouri, died from his injuries in a bull riding competition Tuesday night in Denver. Lowe was stomped on his chest by the 1,700-pound bull. Eyewitnesses at the event told KCNC-TV that Lowe got up and stumbled to the exit where riders leave the arena. It was there that Lowe collapsed.
PBR CEO Sean Gleason made the announcement on their website Tuesday evening.
“We are deeply saddened to report that Mason Lowe passed away this evening following injuries sustained at the PBR event in Denver,” Gleason said. “The entire PBR and National Western sports family extends our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to Mason’s wife Abbey and his family.”
Lowe started his pro career in 2012. His second career event took place in West Plains, Mo. His career winnings totaled $395,672.83.
