Accident injures two in Camp Courage Wagon Train

It was supposed to be a day of celebration for the participants of the 25th Courage Center Wagon Train.  But the June 20 conclusion of the Wagon Train was marred when a teenage participant and a Camp Courage staffer were injured as a frightened horse bolted through the crowd.  Chelsea Burton, age 14 of Hudson, Wis., was treated and released from the Buffalo Hospital. Seasonal Camp Courage staffer Cheryl Stephens, age 53 of New Richmond, Wis., was transported by helicopter to North Memorial Medical Center.  The Wagon Train had just completed its Thursday morning journey from Maple Lake to Camp Courage and the participants were circling the field at about 11:30 a.m. Wagon Train participants said a horse stepped on his lead rope, causing the frightened horse to bolt from his handler and through the field of participants and spectators. “Somebody hollered ‘Horse’ and that horse came flying as fast as he could run,” one witness said.
