The Jandilla bull named Cappucino started in almost immediately. After his first few strides he broke from the pack and began throwing his horns. Cappucino crashed into the barricades at Town Hall. The herd rushed past. From then on he was a Suelto—a lone, agitated bull. Cappuccino raised hell up Estafeta street and came barreling into the soft bend at the Telefonica section. Pamplonican 27-year-old Daniel Jimeno was a highly experienced runner who was pulling himself under the bottom rung of a fence after falling in a pile up. Cappucino swerved off and slammed into the wooden barricades. Jimeno was gored in the neck. The horn entered on a downward trajectory and severed his aorta. He bled to death in a few minutes.
