4 hos­pi­tal­ized af­ter run­ning of the bulls

Albany Times Union - Sunday - - NATION / WORLD -

A man who was gored and three oth­ers who were tram­pled in the first run­ning of the bulls of this year’s San Fer­min fes­ti­val were hos­pi­tal­ized Sat­ur­day, of­fi­cials in the Span­ish city of Pam­plona said.

Among those re­ceiv­ing med­i­cal treat­ment is a 20-year-old Cana­dian man with mild trau­matic in­juries, the of­fi­cials from the Navarra re­gional gov­ern­ment said in a state­ment.

The other men are of Span­ish na­tion­al­ity and in­clude a 38-year-old who was gored and a 40-yearold who sus­tained se­ri­ous trau­matic in­juries.

Overnight rain had made the route’s al­ready-nar­row cob­bled streets more slip­pery than usual, adding to the dan­ger in the tra­di­tional race.

The run­ners com­pleted the 930-yard course with bulls weigh­ing 1,100 to 1,400 pounds in two min­utes and 37 sec­onds.
