A 44-YEAR-OLD French tourist has died after being gored during a festival in Alicante.
The unnamed victim was fatally injured by a charging bull early Tuesday morning and died at the scene, becoming the fourth goring fatality of the past three weeks.
The earlier goring victims include a 43-year-old in Caceres, an 80-year-old in L’Ampolla and a 54-year-old in Castellon.
All four fatalities have come during seasonal festivals that include bull runs through narrow city streets.
The most famous of these festivals, San Fermin in Pamplona, concluded on Tuesday without any fatalities, although 10 people were gored and over a dozen others were hospitalised for injuries sustained in falls.
