4 hospitalized after running of the bulls
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.
