At a bullfighting festival in Chilches in Eastern Spain yesterday, one of the bulls ended up winning one for the animal kind. Bull Juanito took a crazy run and skewered 19-year-old Fran González into his groin. The bullfighting enthusiast died in a hospital of his injuries. He is already the second fatal victim in a week of Spanish bullfighting festivals.
Hundreds of people were mourning in a circle this afternoon in Chilches, a village near Valencia. They commemorated the deceased Spanish young man.
According to Spanish media, the victim was a huge fan of bullfighting. Fran, from nearby village La Vall de Uixó, always visited the festivals in the region with friends and family. Like a ‘recortador’, someone who acrobatically tries to avoid the bull, he many times entered the arena or fearlessly approached bulls in the street.
