Six People Hurt After Racehorse Jumps Into Stands
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Six people are injured after a horse left the track and jumped into a crowd of spectators during a Hispanic rodeo in southeast Kansas City.
Police say none of the injuries were serious after the incident occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday at the Benjamin Ranch. A police official said two horses were being ridden by jockeys when one of them went into the stands and struck several people. Fire department ambulances took the injured spectators to an area hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries.
Ranch manager Bob Faulkner said the most serious injury appeared to be a broken arm. He said the Hispanic rodeos are held every Sunday at the ranch.
