Gruesome Injury: Bullfighter in “Grave Condition” After Being Gored in the Jugular (Video + Pics)
The last time we wrote a post about bullfighting was May 23, 2014. It was about how the Feria de San Isidro bullfighting festival had just been cancelled after all three matadors were gored.
I mention this because the Feria de San Isidro bullfighting festival is back. And yesterday matador Saul Jiménez Fortes, one of the guys who was gored last year, was gored again—this time in the jugular.
Obviously Saul Jiménez Fortes is the Utah Jazz of bullfighting.
Amazingly, though, he’s not dead. It was close. Another few centimeters and he’d be the late Saul Jiménez Fortes. But apparently his spine prevented the bull’s horn from ripping completely through his jugular, carotid, and esophagus. Way to go spine! Fortes is still in the ICU, but it looks like he’ll pull through.
At this point, I’m going to show you some disturbing photos and a video. If seeing a guy get gored in the neck doesn’t sound like something you’d like to see, might I suggest you leave and go read a post about adorable puppies.
Seriously, this is your last chance to not see this.
Okay, fine, here you go…
