This Bullfighter Suffered Serious Rectal Damage As a Result of Being Gored

A bullfighter in Mexico City suffered severe rectal damage this weekend as the result of a violent goring.

Univision reports that bullfighter Antonio Romero suffered a nearly foot-long goring in his rectum from a bull named Caporal.

A great deal of bleeding followed the goring. And per the Univision report, Romero was bleeding so much that medical personnel needed to stop it in order to save his life.

Amazingly, surgeon Juan Carlos Sanchez said, “The patient is fine, he has endured the surgery perfectly, a serious situation that endangers his life at a time because of the severity of the injury, but the damage is already controlled. The next 24 hours for tomorrow to begin the reconstruction of the anus.”
