The sad news was just reported that athlete Mason Lowe has just passed away. The 25-year-old professional bull rider died after suffering several injuries at an event.

Recently, Lowe was competing at the National Western Stock Show in Colorado when he got injured. The Professional Bull Riders Association released a statement about Lowe’s fatal accident.

PBR president Sean Gleason wrote,  “We are deeply saddened to report that Mason Lowe passed away this evening following injuries sustained at the PBR event in Denver. The entire PBR and National Western sports family extends our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to Mason’s wife Abbey and his family.”

According to Fox, Lowe was ranked 18th in the world for professional bull riding. He had been involved with the sport since he was only 3 years old.

A witness told CBS that Lowe was bucked off of before the bull "stepped on his chest." Lowe then got up, stumbled a bit, and then collapsed.

According to CBS News, the Professional Bull Riding Association didn’t give any further information about Lowe’s death or the nature of his accident.

However, witness Gerardo Alvarez said, "He was thrown off the bull and while he was on the ground the back legs stomped him in the chest while he was trying to get up. When he got up he immediately grabbed his chest and stumbled over to the exit and then fell to the ground again grabbing his chest before he could get out of the area. They took him out on a stretcher."

Please be praying for Lowe's family and friends during this sad time. He was so young and was taken too soon. Share your prayers here. In other recent news, a legendary Christian singer just lost his wife of 65 years. Please keep him in your prayers.
