Things Didn’t Go Well For This Bullfighter, And He Took A Horn Through The Neck As A Result

You’ll be shocked to learn that going toe-to-toe with an angry bull yields disastrous results. Just ask torero Jiménez Fortes, who was gored by a bull for a second time this year (and third time since 2014). That’s probably a sign that you’re not good at what you do. Or, I don’t know, maybe the whole bullfighting thing is just a bad idea. But I digress.

Jiménez Fortes is in “serious, but stable condition,” requiring four hours of surgery after the bull’s horn went through his skull. There are some truly gruesome images of the incident on Twitter.

Consider this your warning.

This is a translation from La Voz de Galicia, a Spanish website.

Jimenez was operated overnight from Sunday to Monday in the Clinical Hospital of Salamanca during “four hours” of intervention gored in the neck, considered as “very serious” and that reaches the base of the skull , reported Efe his manager Nemesio Matthias.

The Malaga was admitted in the Intensive Surveillance Unit (ICU) of this same hospital complex in the capital of Salamanca, where it will spend “several days,” added the attorney, who has returned to insist that the gore is “very strong” and produces “much damage ».

“The python entered under the chin and seriously affected the language, the nasal region and destroys the taste buds as well as arriving to him to the base of the skull. It is a tremendous goring, but now we just have to wait, since there is no medical report and only know that lead to the ICU, “he said.

The gore is “very strong” and “produces much damage.” Obvious information is obvious.
