A 14-year-old girl narrowly escaped with her life when she was trampled by spooked horses in a meadow in Boekend.

The teen from Limburg had gone to the stables with some friends to say farewell to a horse that was going to be euthanized. A witness told journalists that when something spooked a group of other horses out in the field, the girl got caught up in their sudden stampede and got trampled. Gravely injured she was airlifted to a nearby hospital. “This is a terrible accident,” said Paul Leunissen, the owner of Beekshof stables where the accident happened.
