Woman, 23, in grave condition after being gored during Pamplona bull run

- The Washington Times - Sunday, July 14, 2013

A 23-year-old Australian woman was critically injured after being gored by a bull during the final run of this year's annual San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain, on Sunday.

Identified only as J.E., the woman was gored in the back and suffered multiple rib fractures and damage to her right lung, reported the regional government that organizes the festival.

A 19-year-old Spaniard who had stopped breathing on Saturday after being crushed in a pileup of runners has recovered consciousness, the Associated Press reported, according to regional health authority spokesman Javier Sesma.

A 35-year-old American man from Cleveland who was gored by a bull the same day is recovering "favorably" from a "rectal perforation," said a Navarra Hospital statement.

Patrick Eccles, a 20-year-old University of Utah student who was gored Friday, was in a stable condition after having his spleen removed, the statement said.
