Man killed during running of bulls

July 11, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A charging bull gored a young Spanish man to death at Pamplona's San Fermin festival, the first such fatality in nearly 15 years. Nine others were injured in an especially dangerous and chaotic chapter of the running of the bulls.

Pamplona officials identified the man as Daniel Jimeno Romero, 27, from Alcala de Henares, outside Madrid. He was on vacation with his parents and girlfriend, who identified him.

The San Fermin festival website said Jimeno Romero was gored in the neck and lung during a run in which a bull separated from the pack. Isolated bulls are more likely to get disoriented and start charging at people.
