Professional Bull Rider, Lee Akin Remains in Critical Condition

Professional bull rider, Lee Akin, remains in critical condition in the critical care unit at Baptist Hospital in Montgomery, AL, eight days after he sustained a traumatic brain injury when he was bucked off Smith, Harper and Morganís, Dick Dasteredly, on March 8, 2007 during the Southeastern Livestock Exposition and Rodeo in Montgomery, AL. Akin, of Weatherford, OK, suffered a skull fracture after the bull stepped on the left side of his head upon hitting the ground. On March 10, 2007, Akin underwent further surgery to relieve additional pressure on his brain. He is currently in a medically induced coma, which allows the body to relax and recover more quickly. He remains in the care of a neurosurgeon.

The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) continues to follow his condition.
