A young man dies after being gored by a bull when he slipped while trying to help another man

A young man of 28 years has died this Saturday afternoon in bullfighting celebrations in Paiporta (Valencia) after being gored by a bull when he slipped and fell when he tried to help another man towards whom the animal was heading .

The event took place this Saturday afternoon in these festivities organized by a local bullfighting club, the Mayor, Isabel Martín , has indicated to Europa Press .

Thus, the young man, who was a neighbor of Torrent, tried to distract the animal so that it would not chase the other man, when it slipped and fell to the ground, and the bull cornered him. Although the toilets that were in the place tried to save his life, the wound was fatal.

The club that organized the festivities decided to cancel the rest of the events that took place on Saturday. For its part, the consistory of Paiporta has expressed its condolences to the family of the deceased.
