GORED TO DEATH: Victor Barrio

ONE of Spain’s top bullfighters has died after being gored to death during a festival in Teruel in Aragon.

Victor Barrio, 29, was caught off guard and the bull, named Lorenzo, tossed him into a somersault and then gored him in the chest as he lay on the ground.

The bullfighter was rushed to hospital but doctors were unable to save his life.

Barrio’s death was the first matador fatality in Spain for more than 30 years.
