victor+barrioVictor Barrio, a professional bullfighter, was gored to death by a bull during a competition on live television in Spain over the weekend.

This is the first pro matador to be killed in the ring in more than three decades.

Victor was pronounced dead Saturday night after first being gored in the thigh by the 1,166-pound bull’s left horn, and his body was flipped over.

He was gored a second time in the chest, and the blow penetrated a lung and his aorta as he was on the ground.

Medics were at his side almost immediately, but attempts to save his life were unsuccessful.

Victor was only 29 years old. Our condolences to his loves ones.
