A Spanish Matador by the name of Victor Barrio was gored to death during a live broad cast by a gigantic bull.

The bull caught Barrio of guard and one of its horns pierced Barrio in the chest then slammed him to the ground. The bull wasn’t done yet because as Barrio was on the ground the bull got one more piercing blow to his body before he was chased away.

Barrio was rushed out of the ring but was pronounced dead immediately.

Victor Barrio was the first Matador to die inside the ring since 1985 when Jose Sanchez was gored in the heart and died instantly, and what makes it even worse is that he replaced an injured Matador just moments before.

534 professional bullfighters have died since 1700 but statistics show that nearly 40,000 bulls are killed every because of the so called sport.
