‘Hurry up, I’m dying!’: Last words of Spanish bullfighter gored to death after tripping on cape

SPANISH bullfighter Ivan Fandino has died after being gored by a bull in southern France.

The 36-year-old was entertaining a crowd in Aire-sur-l’Adour yesterday when he tripped on his cape and fell to the floor.

The bull swiftly gored him savagely in his right flank.

The Basque bullfighter, from Bilbao, was rushed to a nearby hospital after undergoing an emergency procedure at the bullring, but he was announced dead on arrival.

His last words are said to have been ‘Hurry up, I’m dying!’ as he was being rushed to the hospital.

He is the second Spanish bullfighter to die in 12 months after the death of Victor Barrio last July.

  1. Fantastic. I Only wish he’d died a slower more painful death, like the bulls do in this pathetic ‘sport’. May this scene be repeated many times until Spaniards finally make it into the 21st century along with everyone else.

  2. Hello Dave. What you need to do, mate, is translate your comment into Spanish, practice a bit, and then wheel it out into the street. Otherwise, I don’t know what to make of you.

  3. I don’t care if you ‘reject animal cruelty’ (in a discussion about bullfighting), and you have every right to feel as you do (as do I to support the spectacle in a country where it is legal and popular). I think, however, that celebrating the death of a fellow human being, in print, is an abomination.

  4. these people are not human beings…..they are the murdering slaughterers of innocent animals……these people are barbaric backward cowards…….bull fighting cannot be glorified in anyway….they deserve all they get
