Sheriff injured at Angola Prison Rodeo
ANGOLA - The sheriff's office said West Feliciana Parish Sheriff Austin Daniel is recovering after a horse fell on him at the Angola Prison Rodeo this weekend.
Daniel's daughter told News 2 he was being introduced and dismounting when the horse got spooked. Daniel fell off the horse, and his daughter said the horse fell on top of him.
Daniel suffered four broken ribs, a punctured lung and a broken collarbone. His daughter said he's expected to make a full recovery, but it will take a long time.
The Angola Prison Rodeo is held every Sunday in October. Proceeds cover rodeo expenses and supplement the Louisiana State Penitentiary Inmate Welfare Fund which provides for inmate educational and recreational supplies.
