Man Dies After Being Gored While Filming Bull Run on His Cell Phone
Mayor Jesus Hijosa said on Monday that the man was filming the run at the town festival around 1:30a.m. on Sunday and apparently didn’t notice that one of the bulls was heading straight for him.
The mayor said: “This sends shivers down our spine… We organize these events as a tradition, so that people can enjoy them, but these things happen.
“Bulls are dangerous animals and when there are a lot of people some don’t pay attention… you have to have your wits about you.”
The 32-year-old victim was gored in the neck and thigh. He died later Sunday in the hospital.
This has been the fourth death by goring in town festivals just this year alone in Spain.
The running of the bulls is a traditional part of summer festivities across Spain. The most famous run is San Fermin in Pamplona which takes place every July.
