Bull charges couple at rodeo

WILLIAMSTON, NC (CNN) - Having front-row seats for a rodeo sounds pretty exciting, but for one couple, the event turned into an nightmare when they were charged by a high-jumping bull.

The event was held at the Old Ford Fire Department Rodeo on Saturday and rodeo workers were trying to round up the bull after a rider fell off, but the bull had other ideas.

The bull jumped over a 5' fence, into the stands and then back out again.

Butch Trimnal pushed his wife out of the bull's way, but they both were injured.

Officials at the venue offered the couple assistance with their medical bills and unlimited tickets to any future events.

As for the bull, he was not injured and was used again later in the show.
