Two US citizens and a Spanish man were rushed to the hospital after suffering injuries while joining a bull run in Pamplona, ​​Spain, authorities said Sunday.

The bull run is the most visited event for tourists during a one-week San Fermin party here.

“The number of victims treated in the emergency ward of the Navarra hospital was reported to have risen to five, three of which were caused by bull horns,” Navarra region administrator said via Twitter.

Authorities in a statement said the injured victims included two US citizens aged 23 and 46 and a Spanish man injured in the left thigh.

Local media said the bull victims had serious injuries.

The fight and the bull run is part of a traditional event during summer parties throughout Spain.

Those aged 18 and above are allowed to join the Pamplona run even though the authorities have warned  about the risks.

Since 1911, a total of 16 people died in the event and the last incident was recorded in 2009.
