ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. -- A 70-year-old man was flown to a local trauma center with serious injuries after a cow attacked him at a ranch, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.
Oscar Wilcox was flown to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and Heart Institute in Fort Pierce following the New Year's Day incident at a ranch. He was listed in critical condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Wilcox's wife told a deputy that her husband was working on a fence in the pasture when she heard him scream. She drove into the pasture and saw a cow "attacking" her husband.
"She was able to hit the cow several times with the truck to get it off of her husband," the report states.
