WELLINGTON, Fla. - A horse groom who died Friday afternoon after being kicked in the chest by a horse at the International Polo Club has been identified as Jose Calverio, according to Teri Barbera, spokeswoman Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
Calverio, 26, was a horse groomer for a professional polo player. He was taking a horse from the field when he ran behind another horse, spooking the animal, Barbera said. She said the horse kicked Calverio, knocking him unconscious.
Calverio was flown by Trauma Hawk to Delray Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 3:34 p.m., Barbera said.
The accident happened around 2:46 p.m. during a polo match at 3667 120 th Ave South in Wellington.
PBSO is conducting a non-criminal accidental death investigation, Barbera said.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been notified, she said.
