The bull run is the central event of the Fiesta of San Fermin.


MADRID – A Spaniard who was trying to help another runner in Pamplona’s bull-run died after he was gored by a charging bull on Saturday (July 9).

Two other men were injured after they too were gored by the bull on the third day of the San Fermin festival.

A spokesman for the regional government said that the 28-year-old man died after a bull’s horn pierced his lung and heart.

A 24-year-old Spanish man was injured in the arm, while a 33-year-old Japanese man was gored in the chest, authorities said. They are in stable condition in hospital.

Pamplona’s bull runs last four minutes along an 828-metre stretch of narrow streets. It features six bulls.

Over the past century 15 people have died in Pamplona’s event, according to a count on the unofficial San Fermin website. The last death was recorded in 2009.
