People injured in the first day of San Fermin Festival


The 30-year-old Briton was gored in the groin area. However, none of the three was said to be in a serious condition. Eight others were injured, including three other Americans. During the San Fermin festival the running of the bulls, nationally televised, happens at 8:00 am from 7 July to 14 July. The daily run happens with people dashing with six bulls along a narrow, 930-yard (850-metre) course from a holding pen to the city’s bullring. Tle last run was only two minutes long. The celebration of the festival has its origin in the combination of two different medieval events: first, a traditional party of merchants came into town with their animals; second, the celebration of Saint Fermin.
