A French man officiating at a bull fighting event in Carcassonne, France, was seriously injured when a bull broke into the safety area beside the ring, The Independent reports.
Christian Baile, 55, was acting as ceremonial umpire for the event and had been a central figure in reviving bull fighting in the town 10 years ago.
Baile was initially struck in the thigh by the bull before it charged into the safety area a second time, striking him in the chest and abdomen.
A man was killed in northern Colombia under a week ago after he was gored by a bull after entering the arena to imitate the bullfighters, ITN reports.
