HANSEN, Idaho – A 66-year-old man has died after being thrown from a mule in south-central Idaho.
The Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office tells The Times-News the man was bucked off the mule Friday morning and was pronounced dead after lifesaving measures failed.
Spokeswoman Lori Stewart says the man was riding with another person about five miles south of Foothill Road when he was bucked off.
Emergency responders drove near the site and hiked into a canyon to find the man.
His name hasn’t been released.
