A 32 year old Spanish man has died after being gored in the neck by a bull during a festival in the town of Toledo, his death caught on the man’s mobile phone (see video below)
The man who has yet to be named was killed Saturday after attending the traditional event at Villaseca de la Sagra.
Gruesomely, the man’s death would be captured on cell phone as the beast was herded into the town’s ring, with the man along with other patrons running alongside the bull.
Things would come undone according to local media reports when the man was then gored in the neck inside the arena to the horror of onlookers when the animal came up behind them.
Despite being taken to a nearby hospital, the man according to AP died the following day, prompting the town’s mayor to urge revelers to take care.
Told Jesus Hijosa: ‘The young man was filming with his mobile phone, a bull surprised him from behind and gored him in the neck’
‘This sends shivers down our spine… we organise these events as a tradition, so that people can enjoy them, but these things happen.
‘Bulls are dangerous animals and when there are a lot of people some don’t pay attention… you have to have your wits about you.’
According to reports, the victim had come in lieu of the annual festival, one of many that take place in Spain, from a neighboring village along with friend.
In 2010 another man was killed in a run in the Spanish town. Fifteen people have been killed while running in Pamplona, the home of the country’s most famous festival, since 1911.
