Matador Gets Gored Right Up The Butt By Bull
WARNING: GRAPHIC STORY AND VIDEO
Most people, when traveling abroad, go to see whatever the locals love to do. For some places, like Madrid, one big draw is the bullfighters. Just like on TV, they draw the bull closer with a red or pink piece of fabric, and then as the bull comes by, they'll stick a sword in it. For one matador, things didn't go so well.
This week at the annual event Prieto de la Cal in Madrid, where Alejandro Conquero took on a white bull with his pink cape.
Alejandro Conquero is the son of a famous bullfighter known as The Hurricane of Huelva, so this was an even more exciting match up.
The 28-year-old matador held his own against the bull in the first part of video that's been shared, until things took a turn.
In the video, you can see one of the horns just barely catch Conquero, sending him through the air.
He started to get up but the bull got back to him before he could, and unfortunately that meant him somehow ending up facing away from the bull on his hands and knees.
The bull pushed forward, and the horn went right into his butt, and then the bull threw him in the air, several feet up this time.
He came down to the ground as the other matadors jumped into the ring to divert the bull's attention. Conquero hopped up off of the ground and hobbled off holding his butt.
Doctors told COPE that Conquero suffered "a goring in the posterior perianal region, which dissects the rectum through the coccyx and could affect the external sphincter of the anus" ... but he says he feels fine.
Conquero has spoken out to thank those who have been thinking of him.
"I am excited and I give a thousand thanks to those who at this time have thought or have been interested in me," Conquero said on an Instagram story. "The evolution is positive, there is no fever, pain, the normal one but with the hope of being able to dress up soon. Thank you very much."
Happy healing, Alejandro. Hopefully whoever your boss is isn't too much of a pain in your ass...
