One gored in third bull run

One gored in third bull run

One person has been gored and two others injured in a panic-filled third running of the bulls at Spain’s San Fermin festival.

The run today lasted six minutes, 23 seconds – more than double the usual time - after one of the six bulls separated from the pack and caused several moments of fear as he tried repeatedly to charge runners.

Navarra Hospital’s Dr Fernando Boneta said one person was gored in the thigh. Two others were taken to hospital for head and rib injuries, respectively. Their identities were not released.

Thousands of people took part in the morning dash ahead of the bulls and six bell-tinkling steers who try to keep the beasts together along the 930-yard course from a holding pen to the northern town’s bull ring.
