Wow, I'm glad to hear that he will recover. That said, I find bullfighting to be barbaric.
Agree with you. It's barbaric but then I don't want to judge knowing that the meat I eat doesn't come from happy animals either. In this case I hope he will be fine but stop this "sport".

Any more details about the accident?
Well it wasn't an accident. The bull did it on purpose.

The matador fell and the bulls horn penetrated below the chin through the tongue. The lower jaw is shattered, the upper broken. He needed 6 hrs surgery. No vital organs are damaged but the recovery will be very slow.
 

Compile 'em all

Damn, I wonder how painful it was having a horn going up your jaw like that. :(
