A 12-year-old boy was knocked into a bull-pen before a Spanish bull-run event on Sunday, before an annual fiesta event in eastern Spain.
The boy was watching the bulls preparing for the event from a platform above their pen, but fell after one of the animals broke the railing on which he was leaning.
Footage of the incident shows the bull using it's horns to lift up a heavy metal gate, which knocks the safety rail above away, causing the boy to plummet into the the bull pen.
The boy lands at the bull's hooves and the confused animal tries to butt at him with its horns and then tramples him with its hooves, leading to an immediate reaction from the crowd while some rush to help the boy with sticks.
It was reported on Sunday by Spanish media that he was not seriously hurt but has been kept for medical treatment.
