1 gored, 3 bruised in bull run

Toronto Sun - - NEWS -

PAM­PLONA, Spain — Span­ish health of­fi­cials say one per­son was gored in the arm and three oth­ers sus­tained bruises on the sev­enth day of bull runs at the an­nual San Fer­min fes­ti­val in Pam­plona.

One bull raced clear of the pack and sowed con­fu­sion among the run­ners Fri­day, hook­ing one run­ner by his waist-sash and throw­ing him to the ground.

The bull then slipped on a bend in the nar­row, cob­bled streets and squashed a run­ner against a hoard­ing.

Jon Arizeta, a Navarra re­gional hospi­tal spokesman, says the four men were taken for treat­ment af­ter the run, which took place in dry weather and lasted two min­utes and 20 sec­onds, the same as the pre­vi­ous day.
