Distraction kills: man filming Spanish bull run on mobile gored to death

A man filming the running of the bulls in Villaseca de la Sagra has been gored to death.

Jesus Hijosa, the mayor of Villaseca de la Sagra, says:

“The young man was on the path of a bull run which he was filming with his mobile phone. A bull surprised him from behind and gored him in the neck.”


He then added – and get this:

“This sends shivers down our spine.”

Well, yes. But van we blame the death on the fetish for watching life though a small mobile phone window?

In photos: the San Fermin cock and bull run 2012

TO Pamplona, Spain, for the San Fermin bull run. Two Londoners have been injured by the bulls. Liam Tarff, 29, was gored in the left thigh. Nick Couchman was gored in the right thigh. Says Tarff (-Luck): “I felt its horn go through my leg. It was like being stabbed with a large knife…If the bull’s horn had gone in a few inches higher through somewhere like my heart, I probably would not have been around to tell the tale.” And you how many times he’s gong to tell the tale, don’t you. If his leg was his heart, he’d be dead. The Cocks and Bulls:
