A bull trampled a woman at a central Florida rodeo on Saturday.
At the traditional "Cracker Day" event, spectators enter the ring and compete to remove a ribbon from a bull's horn.
The bull ran straight for Desiree Cicero and ran her over.
She was also grazed by a horn.
Another competitor, later identified as John Weideman-Beal, a U.S. Marine, jumped on top of her when the bull charged a second time.
Cicero says the man probably saved her life. "I couldn't believe it. If he wasn't there, that bull could've smashed my face in."
Cicero suffered a broken rib and deep bruises.
Weideman-Beal was not hurt.
