Three Men Including Two US Citizens Gored at Bull Running Festival in Spain’s Pamplona

  Three Men Including Two US Citizens Gored at Bull Running Festival in Spain’s Pamplona A 35-year-old US citizen sustained a chest wound and a 29-year-old US citizen was gored in the scrotum. Another man from Ireland was also injured in the race. All of them were taken to a nearby hospital, reports said.   Some more runners were treated for minor injuries after two bulls separated from the other four in the pack on their way to bull ring, and completed the 850-metre course in just under three minutes, the average time of run.

You might take a bullet for someone, but would you take a buffalo?

A man is in hospital after taking the brunt of a charging buffalo to protect someone else, in a remote part of the Northern Territory.

A 61-year-old safari tour guide was attacked by the buffalo about 10:30am yesterday, around 170 kilometres north-west of Numbulwar.

It is believed the buffalo charged at another man who had fallen to the ground, when the tour guide threw himself between the buffalo and the man.

The tour guide suffered lacerations and suspected fractures, and had to be driven back to town before being flown to hospital.

Clinic staff from the town of Numbulwar travelled several hours to retrieve the injured man, before he was airlifted to Royal Darwin Hospital.

It comes with your standard hybrid smartwatch features: a heart rate sensor, activity tracker, GPS, Bluetooth, and a notification system.
