MADRID – A Spanish man has died after being gored by bull during a summer festival in a southwestern Spanish town.
Coria town spokeswoman Clara Iglesias said Thursday the man was standing at a protective barrier in the town's bull ring when the bull charged and managed to get a horn between the barrier's vertical tube bars to gore him twice. A video of the goring, which occurred Wednesday evening, was posted on several Spanish news websites.
A town hall statement said the 43-year-old man died later from injuries to the abdomen and chest in Coria's hospital. He was from a neighboring town.
Fiestas featuring bulls are common in Spain and many people are injured each year.
Spain's most famous bull-running event is in the San Fermin festival in Pamplona in July.
