Three people have died in Spain after being ransacked by bulls. Two victims (50 and 56) were killed after being attacked in a suburb of Valencia. Bulls run there every year as part of a popular celebration.
The third victim, a French tourist in his 60s, was hospitalized in critical condition in early July after being impaled in a village near Alicante. He died earlier this week.
Running bulls, a tradition in Spain especially during the summer, regularly takes the lives of victims. However, there are protocols that aim to prevent these types of accidents.
The most famous bull run takes place every year in the north of Pamplona. Hundreds of runners try to get as close as possible to six bulls during an 850m race through the cobblestone streets of the city. This year, a total of five people were beaten, but no one was seriously injured. Since 1911, at least 16 runners have lost their lives in the event.
