Mariano De la Viña, 57, was taking part in the El Pilar fair when he was charged by a bull; he was knocked to the floor and gored before the animal lifted him into the air.

The bull then dragged De la Viña across the bullring at the Plaza de Toros in Zaragoza in Spain, after which he suffered three cardiac arrests as a result of being gored.

After the bullfighter was dragged across the ring in front of a stunned audience, the animal attacked De la Viña for a second time – leaving him with a 27cm wound through his groin and a 22cm cut between his rectum and bladder.

The latter tore a vital artery in his right Scarpa triangle, with De la Viña’s femoral artery also being severed during the attack.

Friends and family of the matador say it is a ‘miracle’ he’s still alive, with De la Viña having since undergone two lengthy operations in an attempt to save his life.

The matador’s injuries were described as ‘cataclysmic’ by his surgeon, who said every hour would count towards his chance of survival.
