3 hurt, 1 seriously injured, in Pamplona bull run

PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) -- Three people were injured, one seriously, as thousands of daredevils raced alongside six fighting bulls in the second running of the bulls at Spain's world-famous San Fermin festival Tuesday.

No one was gored but a Navarra regional government statement said a 23-year-old man from Nottingham, England, was in serious condition with chest injuries and rib fractures sustained during the frenzied dash through the narrow winding streets of this northern city. He was identified only by his initials, T. H.

The government said a Japanese man and a Spaniard were also treated in hospital for light injuries.

One person was gored in the opening run Monday.

Dozens of people are injured each year in the 8 a.m. runs along a 930-yard (850-meter) course from a holding pen to Pamplona's bull ring. Most are hurt in falls.

Fifteen people have died from gorings since record-keeping began in 1924.

The nine-day street-partying festival was immortalized in Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel "The Sun Also Rises" and attracts thousands of foreign tourists.

Good for the bulls, except all of them will be killed at the end of the day. Sometimes I'm ashamed to be a human.
