Bull statues at the National Ranching Heritage museum on Texas Tech University campus

A 14-year-old boy was tragically killed this weekend after being impaled on a bull statue on the Texas Tech University campus.  The young victim, Miguel Martinez, and the family of his best friend Jeremy, went for a walk early Saturday morning outside the National Ranching Heritage Museum (located on the Texas Tech campus) when the tragic accident occurred. Reportedly, Miguel was playing hide-and-seek when he took off running, tripped over a light, and fell straight onto one of the bull statue’s three-foot-long horns which pierced through the boy’s chest.  The boy was pronounced dead on the scene.
