At this point, the bull came up from behind and hit him with a horn. The man touched the neck, arm, saw the blood and realized how strong was wounded. He didn’t know what to do, but someone grabbed his arm and dragged him through the crowd straight to the doctors.
The patient was operated in regional clinic for over two and a half hours. Experts noted that the horn of a bull went deep into the neck of the victim, broke part of the cheekbone and missed the jugular vein and major arteries, which surprised the doctors. Now to the man threatens nothing.
