Among the injured was a ten-year-old boy, who was taken to hospital with serious stomach wounds. One man was gored in the back.

The incident happened during an event attended by about 3,500 spectators, in which contestants known as recortadores try to get a bull to charge at them so they can dodge it.
But the bull jumped out of the ring, clearing two barriers before landing in the stands and lurching through the screaming crowd, charging at everything it could.
