Bull jumps into crowd at North Carolina rodeo

February 27, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Having front row seats at a rodeo turned out to be much too close for comfort for one North Carolina couple.

Butch Trimnal and his wife were charged by a bull that jumped right into the stands after the rider fell off Saturday at a rodeo in Williamston, N.C.

Trimnal managed to push his wife out of the way. Neither of them were hurt, but they still drove themselves to the hospital.

The rodeo offered the couple help with their medical bills and tickets to future events.

The bull was not injured and was used again later in the show.
