This is the moment a raging bull flips a heavyset man into the air and tosses him around like a rag doll and goring him in front of screaming spectators at a ‘running of the bulls’ even in southern Spain.
The unnamed 56-year-old Spanish man has reportedly been hospitalised with head injuries and a collapsed lung.
In the footage, the heavyset man is seen hanging from a window ledge facing the street with other festival-goers as the bull lingers beneath them.
After apparently growing tired, the man lowers himself to the ground and the bull immediately targets him.
The bull flips the stocky man in the air before repeatedly goring him and trampling on his body.
The incident was filmed during the town festival in honour of Saint Blaise in Benaocaz in the southern Spanish province of Cadiz, and the footage was later widely shared on social media.
According to local media, the victim, who comes from the nearby town of Arcos, was admitted to the Hospital Comarcal Virgen Mountains in the town of Villamartin.
He was gored multiple times by the rampant bull and reportedly suffered a head injury and a collapsed lung.
Fortunately, hospital doctors have described his condition as stable.
Reports said that the same bull injured another man on the same day, but he did not require hospital treatment.
The first ‘running of the bulls’ event took place on 2nd February at around 12.30 without incident, but a second event at 5pm resulted in the two attacks, according to reports.
