WINFIELD, Kan. — An elementary school student in Kansas has died after getting injured in a horseback riding accident.
Local news outlet NewsCow reported that the family of 7-year-old Max Henderson died at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, Kansas, Monday. Max was hurt when a horse flipped over on him Sunday, the family said.
Max was rushed to William Newton Hospital in Winfield, Kansas and stabilized. He then transported Wesley Medical Center where he had surgery. He died shortly after, his family said in a Facebook post, according to NewsCow.
"Max had the most amazing 7 years possible. He said many times that he wanted to be 7 forever. I think deep down he knew he wasn't here for a long time. We are honored to have been his parents and grateful for every second," Max's parents, Shane Henderson and Missi Henderson, said in a statement, according to KAKE.
