One gored in Spain's running of the bulls

PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) - A Spaniard has been gored, an American has been knocked unconscious and five other people have been hurt during today's running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

The run marked day four of the annual festival and was relatively fast, featuring some of the biggest of the fighting bulls at more than 1,500 pounds.

The 31-year-old American apparently just stopped and turned around to face the animals head on. That's regarded as the worst thing a runner can do. One of the bulls bowled him over and knocked him out. He came to, but was sent to the hospital for tests.

A 28-year-old Spaniard was gored in the thigh and will need surgery.

Another American has had surgery after being gored in the buttocks yesterday.

Runners are advised to keep moving during the bull runs in order to minimize their chances of being gored.
