It’s that time again when those brave souls don their boots and cowboy hats and get ready for the longest 8 seconds of their life.

Denny Fitzpatrick got a rough deal on Thursday night. As he was riding the bull he got thrown off. As he hit the ground his helmet flew off. This is where things took a turn for the worse. While he was falling the bull turned on him and hit him dead on in the chest and bucked up to his face. He stumbled over to the fence before falling over. Paramedics rushed to his side to check on him.

Just after getting thrown off his bull, this rider takes refuge on the fence and looks out into the arena to see if it’s safe.
