Minnesota Woman Trampled by Draft Horse in Waverly
WAVERLY (AP) - Authorities say an 81-year-old Minnesota woman was hospitalized after she was trampled by a draft horse at the Waverly Midwest Horse Sale.
Officer Ross Long of the Waverly Police Department says the woman was near a door in the sale barn last week when a horse spooked and started running. He says the woman suffered serious head trauma and was bleeding badly.
The woman was transported to the Waverly Health Center and later airlifted to an unnamed hospital.
David Beyer, a co-owner of the Waverly Horse Barn, confirmed that a woman was injured but declined to comment on the incident.
