Bride-To-Be Dies After Riding Bucking Bronco Bull While On Night Out

“She’d got her whole life planned.”

A bride-to-be tragically passed away after falling down the Bucking Bronco Bull at night out. The 26-year-old dubbed a “kind and funny” girl by her friends and family members, died from a heart attack.

Jessica Lally, 26, from Rotherham, was already engaged to the manager of a jewelry company.

Jessica was on a night out with her friends, according to her mom, Joan. The 66-year-old said, “She’d got her whole life planned. They were going to get married. She always wrote these fantastic Christmas lists, but that year she’d just put: a house, a ring, and a baby.”

“I don’t know why she decided to go on it. She was just having fun, I suppose. She’d just gone out for a night out, and then we had police at the door at midnight,” her mom recalled.

Bronco’s Rodeo GM, Christopher Brown, explained, “From the CCTV, the lady in question appeared to be out having a good time with her friends and excited to ride the bull.”

The bull was “moving on the slowest speed,” and Jessica had “passed all of our safety checks before mounting.”

“She then very quickly after the ride started appeared to have lost consciousness sliding off under her own body weight. The venue decided to close the following week allowing our staff to recover from the shock and allowing police and the council to do their investigation.”

“We’re still going through it now. Sometimes we still fall into pieces. It’s been heartbreaking.”

Over 500 mourners came to pay respect for the girl, rendering the church so packed they couldn’t fit everyone there. People were absolutely heartbroken, and the family decided to raise funding in her name. Jessica’s cousin, Michael Noone, is also running 26 marathons for 12 weeks at the age of 47 in her name.

The firefighters who arrived explained that having emergency defibrillators could’ve increased her chance for survival.

Thousands of dollars have been raised to provide places with defibrillators.

“The council’s investigation shows that the cause of death was not related to the bull, and unfortunately, we haven’t been given the official cause of death yet,” Brown added.
