This is the horror moment a reveller is killed after falling into the path of a raging bull as he tries to reach safety. 

The 30-year-old was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead on arrival after suffering a series of gore injuries including one to the neck.

Footage of the drama showed the bull going for him as he lost his balance while trying to scale a fence and ending up at its mercy on the ground.

He was used to working with bulls and had gained fame in the area as a so-called recortador

He was diagnosed with seven broken ribs and one of the blows he suffered is said to have penetrated one of his lungs and caused a build-up of blood which eventually claimed his life

Seconds earlier he had outrun the animal after dropping his coat in front of it to distract it. The tragedy happened on Saturday night in Navalcarnero near Madrid during an event known as an encierro in which bulls are let loose on the streets.

The dead man has been named as Daniel Gonzalez Arribas.  

He was used to working with bulls and had gained fame in the area as a so-called recortador. This is the name given in Spanish to men who use their bodies to dodge bulls running at them in bullrings by performing jumps, somersaults and other acrobatic feats.

Friend Ricardo Otero said in an online tribute: “A boy has left us doing what he most enjoyed. He was just a boy but he was also a brave person and a friend of the sort you seldom find nowadays, someone who was always ready to help others that could be in danger.”

Several people have been killed already this year at festivals involving bulls in Spain. Three of the victims died in just 24 hours in the month of July.

On July 20 it was confirmed a 56-year-old man had lost his fight for life in hospital after being rushed to intensive care with head and gore injuries on July 12 from an event in Picassent near the east coast city of Valencia.

The local town hall said at the time it had decreed a day of mourning after learning of the man’s death.

On July 19 it emerged a 50-year-old man named as Josep Antoni Garcia Arnau had died at another Valencia hospital from injuries he suffered after being up-ended by a bull at a festival in Meliana a 40-minute drive north of Picassent.

He was diagnosed with seven broken ribs and one of the blows he suffered is said to have penetrated one of his lungs and caused a build-up of blood which eventually claimed his life. Around the same time it was confirmed a Frenchman aged 64 had died in hospital nine days after being gored during an annual festival in Pedreguer on the Costa Blanca a half-hour drive from Moraira.

All three men had been taking part in annual events known locally as Bous Al Carrer, which literally means Bulls on the Street.

Last Monday a man was seriously injured at a festival in the Portuguese village of Reguengo. Horrific footage showed a half-tonne bull kicking him in the face as it was being removed from the area after being let out onto the streets at an annual festival.
