PORTALES, N.M. — An Eastern New Mexico University rodeo team member from northern New Mexico has died after being injured during practice when he was stepped on by a bull.

Team coach Albert Flinn says Urquijo was injured earlier Tuesday evening when he was thrown from the bull and it stepped on him.
