Venezuelan Bullfighter Who Was Seriously Gored in Neck Begins to Recover

MADRID – A Venezuelan matador who crashed, immobile, to the ground after being gored in the neck and tossed in the air by a large Spanish fighting bull has begun to recover some movement in his limbs, a close friend told EFE on Thursday.

Manolo Vanegas was evolving favorably in an intensive care unit from a serious cervical injury sustained as he took part in a bullfight on Wednesday in the western town of Ledesma, close friend and journalist Rubén Darío Villafraz said.

“He is breathing well, unaided, and also moves his arms and legs, with difficulty,” Villafraz said. “But, some movement is detectable,” he added.

“This is the best news that we could have,” he said.

The bullfighter’s lance-bearing assistant, picador José Ney Zambrano, who visited the right-hander on Thursday, said he saw Vanegas looking better than anticipated, Villafraz said.

Vanegas was gored and tossed as he took part in a bullfight in Ledesma’s ring, some 250 kilometers (155 miles) west of Madrid, Villafraz said.

An initial medical examination pointed to Vanegas having suffered “a displacement” of cervical vertebrae C4 and C5, the Virgen de Vega hospital said.
