While at a votive party, a 13-year-old teenager was run over by a bull on Sunday August 22. Seriously injured, his life is no longer in danger.
It could have turned into a drama. Sunday August 22, while at a votive festival in Manduel, in the Gard, a 13-year-old teenager was run over by a bull, as reported by Midi Libre. Supported by firefighters in serious condition, he was evacuated to the emergency room of the CHU Carémeau in Nîmes.
Victim of a head trauma, his condition is nevertheless reassuring, according to the words of the mayor of the village, Jean-Jacques Granat, in France 3 Occitanie.
Mowed down by the animal
Also according to the television channel, the accident occurred during a “bandido”, a parade of bulls in the streets of the city. The teenager and his father had apparently placed themselves in an unsecured area, where no barrier had been installed.
One of the beasts would then have deviated from its path and mown the young boy. He was thrown into the air before falling to the ground. The festivities were cut short due to the incident.
