PAMPLONA, Spain – One person has been gored twice by a fighting bull and two people have suffered other injuries as thousands of thrill-seekers dashed alongside the beasts in the second bull-run of Pamplona’s San Fermin festival.

The San Fermin press office said the victim was gored in the leg and back in Pamplona’s bull ring at the end of the run and was treated by doctors on the scene before being taken to a city hospital. Details of his condition or identity were not immediately released.

Hospital and Red Cross officials had initially said they had no reports of gorings in Wednesday’s run, which lasted 2 minutes, 14 seconds.

One Spaniard was hospitalized for rib injuries while a Frenchman was treated for multiple bruises but later released.
