MADRID -- The bullfighter Luis Miguel Encabo was left in a "very serious" condition on Sunday, after being gored in the ring on the last day of the fiestas in Alcalá de Henares, northeast of Madrid.

Encabo was facing the fifth bull of the afternoon, when the animal stepped on the bullfighter's cape, causing him to turn his back on the animal. He was then gored, and despite being able to stand and face the bull once more, he collapsed and was carried out by first aid officials.
