Talk about getting some hang time.

When Professional bull rider Marco Antonio Eguchi mounted up and waited in the chute for his run in Albuquerque, he didn’t realize he was about to have the ride of his life.

Things started off well for Eguchi over the first six seconds of his ride, but before he knew it, he got bucked—right out of the bull ring:

 

We see cowboys bucked all the time. But this...we haven't seen this. 😳 #PBR

The fans in the front row were stunned when Eguchi flow over the railing right in front of them, as the crew immediately ran to the stands to make sure Eguchi was okay.

Eguchi was able to get up on his own, and while he was a bit bruised and battered, he was ready to ride again.

Just more proof that bull riders are the toughest athletes in the world.
