Boy’s rodeo death was nobody’s fault, mother says

The mother of a 12-year-old boy who died after being thrown by a bull during a rodeo says his son loved riding bulls and that no one should be blamed for his death.

Richard Wayde Hamar of Yuma died Sunday from injuries suffered while competing at the Longmont Elks Little Britches Rodeo for children ages 8 to 18.

Angie Hamar said Monday her son lived for the rodeo and that his accident could’ve also happened if he had been riding a horse.

Hamar says her son was wearing a helmet and a vest during the competition. The Boulder County Sheriff’s office says the bull stomped on they boy’s chest and stomach after throwing him to the ground.
