Think you’ve had a bad day – Ouch!
I was doing some research on some orthopedic injuries and I came across this picture. It affected me instantly. I couldn’t help but to feel a little sympathy for this guy. Along with my sympathy – I’ve also felt some sympathy pains – especially in my neck.
I can’t imagine how it would feel to have a horn through the neck, into the mouth. Wow – I’m officially impressed.
In case you were wondering, this is a Spanish bullfighter – Julio Aparicio during a 2010 bullfight in Madrid. He apparently survived. “[The horn] went though the tongue and penetrated the roof of the mouth, fracturing the jawbone,” one of the medics who worked on Aparicio told AFP news in Madrid. He initially was in critical condition. He went through a series of surgeries to repair the jaw and the mouth structures.
The Bull however, had to be killed by other matadors due to its aggressive nature.
What is the most dangerous activity that you’ve done?
