MUTILATED Spanish bullfighter Julio Aparicio has come out of intensive care
The health of Aparicio – gruesomely gored in the throat at Madrid’s Las Ventas bullring – is said to be “evolving favourably”.
A statement released by the October 12th Hospital also confirmed that the matador’s condition is now “less serious”.
Spectators watched in horror last Friday as Aparicio lost his footing before the half-ton bull’s horn pierced his throat and broke through his mouth.
The 41-year-old, from Sevilla, managed to regain his footing to stumble out of the ring and collapse.
Aparicio required two operations to fix a punctured tongue and fractured jaw bone.
His father, also called Julio, said: “’It was a serious goring. Almost his entire mouth was destroyed.”
