Sebastian Castella, French Bullfighter, Gored In Colombia Ring (VIDEO)

A French bullfighter is recovering from a fractured clavicle after being gored in the ring in Colombia.

Shortly after Sebastian Castella stabbed the animal, the bull charged and sent the matador into the air. As amateur footage of the incident can attest, the animal fell dead just as Castella landed on his left shoulder.

An assistant quickly helped the understandably shaken Castella to his feet. After he waved an appreciative goodbye to the cheering crowd, the bullfighter was rushed to a nearby hospital.
