Two More Men Brutally Gored By Bull At Madrid Municipal Fiesta

Two more men have been brutally gored by a bull during summer festivities in the Madrid region.

Footage shows how onlookers screamed as two men were charged and floored by a bull during festivities in the Madrid municipality of Humanes, on Monday, 19th September.

The video shows how one man was left lying motionless on the tarmac after the bull tore right through his T-shirt with one of its horns.

Both men were injured, one seriously. They were treated by the mobile intensive care unit before being sent to hospitals in Fuenlabrada and Getafe.

The bull goring came hot on the heels of others in the Madrid region.

Last weekend, a volunteer with the Civil Defence of San Sebastian de los Reyes was injured by a bull that had slipped between two fences in Campo Real.

The man – named Oscar – was gored in the back while trying to help a colleague who had tripped and fallen to the ground seconds earlier.

His condition is not serious and he has already been discharged from hospital, according to reports.

Another man was wounded after a bull destroyed a wooden fence and charged pedestrians on a street in Corpa.

Locals managed to climb onto balconies and windows or enter shops and homes, but the man was gored while lifting his son to safety onto a car bonnet.

He suffered several injuries and had to be taken by ambulance to a hospital in Alcala de Henares.

Shockingly, a worker at the bullring in Fuenlabrada was gored to death on Saturday after a bull slipped into the space between the inner and outer barriers.

The incident brought the number of deaths by bulls in the Madrid region this summer to three.

In late August, a man in his 60s was gored to death in Alarpardo, and another man met the same fate during a running of the bulls in Navalcarnero on 10th September.
