A Spanish hospital says a 20-year-old American man who was badly gored during a bull-running festival is out of intensive care and improving.

A spokesman for the Clinic Hospital in western Salamanca said Monday that Benjamin Miller, from Georgia, was out of danger and not likely to have to undergo any further operations.

Miller suffered several wounds, including a 40-cm (16-inch) goring in the thigh, when he was caught by a fighting bull during a festival in the nearby town of Ciudad Rodrigo on Saturday.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with hospital rules.
