Another five people were hurt during Pamplona's Running of the Bulls on Sunday, including an Australian woman who had to undergo surgery after one of the bovines gored her in the thorax. The unidentified 23-year-old broke several ribs and damaged her right lung, and is said by authorities to be in serious condition.

The incident marks the third straight day of injuries at the Fiesta de San Fermin, the famous festival popularized in the United States by Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. Fighting bulls gored three people at opening day on Friday, including one American man who lost his spleen.
