Man dies in Spain after being gored during bull run
A 55-year-old man in eastern Spain has died of blood after being gored in the leg by a bull at a festival in which animals are released into the streets
MADRID – A 55-year-old Spaniard has died of blood after being gored in the leg by a bull during a festival in which animals are released into the streets, local authorities said on Sunday.
The town hall of Onda, in the province of Castellon, in eastern Spain, announced in a statement that it would suspend the last day of Sunday’s bull races after the slaughter on Saturday afternoon during the annual festival.
The local Levante news site said the man was taken to a nearby hospital, but medics were unable to save him.
The best-known event internationally is the San FermÃn Festival in Pamplona, ââwhich took place every year before the pandemic and held eight races on consecutive days through the narrow, cobbled streets of the northern city. Its next edition is expected in July 2022, after a two-year hiatus.
