Flaming-horned bull fatally gores man in Spain

A flaming-horned bull trampled and fatally gored a man during a weekend festival in eastern Spain, an official said.

Large balls of flaming wax are traditionally affixed to the beasts' heads before they are let loose to rampage through squares and narrow streets in such festivals.

The mayor of Navajas, population 730, said emergency services in his town were unable to save the life of the 45-year-old man whose name was withheld.
Jose Vicente Torres said the accident happened on early Saturday when the man, who had travelled from Alboraia, about 70km to the south, tripped just as the bull was released.
Torres said the bull charged the man, gored him and then stamped on his head, causing him 'irreversible injuries.'

He said he had offered his condolences to the man's family, but would not cancel similar events scheduled for early Sunday.
