A Peruvian bull fighter lived his worst night mare, when a bull turned on him and gored him after he slipped to the ground. On the ground he was left vulnerable to the angry bull, and now he is lucky to be alive. The bull rammed the fighter with rage and fury; his horns even got caught in his abdominals and his leg.

He was eventually able to break free from the animal, severely injured and losing a lot of blood. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors expect the man to make a full recovery. The issue of bull fighting is a heated debate in Peru that has divided the nation. While some see it is dated and barbaric others view it as a part of culture and history.
