2014 running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain

Revelers from around the world arrive to Pamplona every year to take part on some of the eight days of the running of the bulls glorified by Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel “The Sun Also Rises.”

Four Spaniards and one American have been gored so far in this year’s festival but only one, a Spaniard, was said to be in serious condition.

An American who co-authored the book “Fiesta: How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona” was one of their victims when he was gored at the festival.

Bill Hillmann, a 32-year-old from Chicago and a longtime participant in the nine-day Pamplona street party, was gored twice in the right thigh during one of the daily bull runs.

The injury was serious but not life-threatening, the Navarra regional government said in a statement.

Dozens of people are injured each year in the 8 a.m. runs along a 930-yard course from a holding pen to Pamplona’s bull ring. Most are hurt in falls.

Fifteen people have died from gorings since record-keeping began in 1924.
