I read this morning in the newspaper La Vanguardia the following:
“The bulls of the livestock Conde de la Corte staged a first confinement of the Sanfermines long and dangerous, in which the pack was broken from Merchants. Two bulls made the solo race and the last one came back several times in the sections of Telefónica and the Alley, causing Moments of tension. The confinement, which lasted 4.20 minutes. Eight people were transferred to hospital centers of Pamplona and no one is injured by a bull horn, according to the medical part provided after the race. Four corridors were transferred to the Hospital of Navarra: J.P., 20 years old and from California, with head injury; A.H., 23 years old and from South Africa, also with head trauma; J.G.G., who has bruising and bruising on the leg, and J.M.E.A., from Lecumberri (Navarra), who suffers thoracic trauma. Four other people were evacuated to the Virgen del Camino Hospital. This is A.M.R., a 22-year-old male from Zamora, with Costal trauma and polyconfusions (reserved forecast); A.B., 21-year-old Englishman, presenting nasal trauma with probable fracture; T.L.N., from New Zealand, 23, with frontal wound and mild prognosis, and E.S.O., from Pamplona, who suffers knee injury. His prognosis is also mild ”.
And if that was not enough, “a young foreigner dies when falling from the Redín Wall during the celebration of San Fermín. The young man found dead this morning after rushing from the wall of Pamplona could be of Irish nationality and have been dead for several hours, as reported by the National Police to the International Press Office of San Fermín. The young man did not carry documentation at the time of his death, although he did have the card of an Irish bank that, for the moment, is the only clue that he has in order to confirm his identity. Apparently, the young man could have dead several hours before his body was found ”.
Accidents and fatalities happen every year in this popular celebration that consists of pissing off to a group of bulls while they chase you rowdy, scared and helpless through the streets of Pamplona. And I wonder: where is the grace in this tradition? Why even though year after year there are deaths and injuries Is the event still repeating gravity? Is there anyone who can explain it to me? Because of course, I do not understand.3.001
