Teenage Bull Rider Making Huge Progress After His Brain Injury

(Kark.com) – On June 3, at the Arkansas High School State Rodeo Finals, 17-year-old Brannon McMinn got on a bull for what was his final ride of the night.

Brannon got hung up, then caught up under the bull, causing a very serious brain injury.

“His head was shaken, so he has multiple injuries around his brain and deep inside,” said mother, Stacey McMinn.

Brannon spent two weeks in the I-C-U, in a coma and sedated. His mother, Stacey McMinn said, “we got a little bit of thumb movement and stuff since the end of that second week and then when they finally took him off the ventilator we started getting half eyes”. CONTINUE
