A bullfighter was fatally gored in an eastern town in Spain; making him the first professional matador to be killed in the ring in more than three decades.

Victor Barrio, 29, was pronounced dead late on Saturday by a surgeon at the Teruel bullring. Barrio was first gored in the thigh by the 1,166-pound (530-kilogram) 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. Medics were at his side almost immediately, but attempts to save his life were unsuccessful.
