You mess with the bull, you get the horns. That is an important phrase to live by when you're involved in bullfighting.

Just because you dodged injuries a couple times in the past doesn't mean you can't one day end up in a painful predicament like Fernando Cruz. As you can see in the video, Cruz gets badly pierced by both of the bull's horns and received wounds to his stomach and right thigh.

The matador was taken to the Hospital Virgen del Mar in Madrid where he is now in stable condition.
