CASPER, Wyo. -

A bull rider from Australia suffered life-threatening injuries while at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyo. on Thursday, according to CBS affiliate in Cheyenne, KGWN.

Bradie Gray suffered broken ribs, a bruised aorta and collapsed lungs after a bull threw him and stepped on his check during competition at the Casper Events Center, according to the KGWN article.

Gray had no pulse when he arrived at the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper.

He underwent surgery and was put into a medically induced coma and on a ventilator.

The College National Finals Rodeo said Gray underwent a total of two surgeries and his condition was now stable.

The Odessa College Rodeo Team Facebook shared a message from Gray's father, Mick Gray.

Mick Gray said his son was "doing better but still has a long road ahead."

He said that Bradie had awoken from the coma and was able to make small movements, but said the ventilator will stay in for a few days.

Gray, a junior in college in Odessa, Texas, is from Tamworth, New South Wales, Australia.

Before the rodeo, Gray said he was coming off his fifth serious injury of his college career and had just one practice ride in preparation for the finals.
