Another Man Gored To Death By Bull During Event In Spanish Town

A father-of-three from Spain has died, and another person injured after being gored by a bull during a Spanish street festival.

 

 

The 59-year-old man was killed during the Chiva muncipality in the eastern region of Valencia during the ‘Torico de la Cuerda’ (‘Running of the Bulls’) event, which ends on Monday.

Local media identified the man who lost his life as Vicente Asensio Martinez, with reports claiming he was gored twice in the abdomen and leg and died on the way to hospital.

The moment the bull charged at a group of people in a doorway, goring a man in red, was caught on camera.

A man in a blue top, who’s reported in Spanish media to be Martinez, appears to fall over the bull when attempting to get out the doorway, leaving him on the ground.

The angry bull attacks the father before dragging him several metres across the ground in the gruesome footage.

Despite Martinez’s death, festival organisers decided to go ahead with the event, however the city council observed a two minute silence to honour him.
