A Utah cowboy is lucky to be alive after a horrific horseback accident last week. On Tuesday, Jan. 16 Jordan Jones was moving cattle on a ranch near Crescent Junction, Utah, something his family said, “he has done many times before without problem.” This time as he went to dismount, his horse spooked sending Jones underneath the horse’s front legs and leaving his face exposed to take the blow.
His family said “many miracles happened to save his life and his cowboy guardian angels were watching over him.”
“The doctors and nurses have been amazed by his grit and toughness that come so naturally to him,” the family wrote on Jones’ GoFundMe page.
Jones, who doesn’t have medical insurance, was released Saturday from the hospital. However the family said Jones will be back for more surgeries to repair the left orbital, broken bones in his face, and dental work.
