PAM­PLONA, Spain — Two Amer­i­cans and a Spa­niard were gored Fri­day dur­ing the first run­ning of the bulls of this year’s San Fer­min fes­ti­val, med­i­cal of­fi­cials in the north­ern Span­ish city of Pam­plona said.

A 46-year-old Span­ish man was un­der­go­ing surgery for se­ri­ous head and leg in­juries af­ter he was gored and then tossed by a bull.

Hos­pi­tal of­fi­cials said the Amer­i­cans had been gored as well dur­ing the run, but their in­juries — in the ab­domen for a 35-year-old man and in the scro­tum for a 29-year-old — weren’t con­sid­ered se­ri­ous.

More run­ners were treated on the spot for bruises, a Red Cross spokesman said, as two of the an­i­mals sep­a­rated from the other four in the pack on their way to Pam­plona’s bull­ring.
