Posted: Updated:

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A 14-year-old West Texas boy is dead after he ran into a bull statue on the Texas Tech University campus and impaled himself on 1 of its horns.

University spokesman Chris Cook says Miguel Martinez impaled himself while playing hide & seek with friends in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday morning.

Campus police say Martinez was at the museum with two adults and two minors when police were called to the scene. Police say Martinez was running on the National Ranching Heritage Museum on the Tech campus when the horn pierced his chest.
