As you can probably imagine, taking a selfie during this event is probably not the best decision one can make. The man, Jaime Alvarez, learned this the hard way after he was not only run over by a bull while trying to take the selfie but he was also gored in the neck.
Doctors were amazed that he was able to survive because of how deep the bull’s horn went into his neck. It fractured his cheekbone but fortunately, it didn’t hit any main arteries.
His urgent surgery took 2 ½ hours but Alvarez says his stable condition means he could be discharged soon and that he has promised himself a return to Pamplona to enjoy the festival as a spectator but not a bull racer.
The smartest decision he’s made yet.
