Two gored in second bull run

Two gored in second bull run

Two people have been gored and at least four more injured in falls today in the second running of the bulls at Spain’s famed San Fermin fiesta.

Navarra Hospital spokesman Fernando Boneta says one man is seriously injured after being gored in the thorax.

He said another man was gored in the leg and is in better condition.

Four more people were taken to hospital in Pamplona for injuries, mostly bruises sustained in falls during the run.

The names and nationalities of the runners gored were not immediately available.

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

The injuries came after two people were injured in the first run yesterday.

An 18-year-old runner from Melbourne, Australia, suffered three fractured vertebrae and was in a serious condition in hospital, and a 20-year old Spanish man received an eye injury but was in less serious condition, Navarra state government said.
