Bull riding, which "was one of her really important hobbies," killed her:

A 16-year-old Riverview High School student was pronounced dead at Tampa General Hospital Friday night after suffering injuries from bull riding, My Fox Tampa Bay reports.

Brooke Ann Coats was riding a bull at 301 Rodeo in Tampa on Friday night when she was thrown off, and passed out shortly after having difficulty breathing.

"She was thrown from the bull and at some point we believe kicked in the chest," HCSO Public Information Officer Larry McKinnon said.
