5 injured at running of the bulls

A man taken the expression "to take the bull by the horns" literally during Pamplona's famous running of the bulls' festival in Spain, in order to save a woman from being gored.

Footage broadcast on Spain's RTVE station shows the bull trying to take out a blonde woman as she sprints down the street.

Two men then distract the bull while she crawls out of harm's way.

A South African man was hospitalised in a serious condition after being gored in the event in a separate incident.

Local officials said five foreigners were injured in the run, and local media have dubbed the event "chaotic and dangerous".

It lasted six minutes - twice as long as usual - as a number of bulls got separated from the rest of the others.
