Running of the bulls: Californian among 3 gored in Pamplona

Image

PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) -- Two Americans and a Briton were gored and eight other people were injured Tuesday as thousands of daredevils dashed alongside fighting bulls through the streets of Pamplona on the first bull run of the annual San Fermin festival, organizers said.

Mike Webster, a 38-year-old occupational therapist from Gainesville, Florida, was gored as he ran with the bulls in Pamplona for the 38th time in 11 years.

San Fermin's media office said he was gored in the armpit, and Webster told The Associated Press from his hospital bed that he hasn't decided whether he'll run again because he first needs to discuss the issue with his wife.

Also gored were a 27-year-old Californian identified by the media office only by his initials, D.M.O., and a 30-year-old Briton with the initials A.B.O. Neither was in serious condition.

Three other Americans were among the eight others injured, most with bruises from falls and crowd crushes during the nationally televised run that lasted just over two minutes.

Man Dies After Setting Firework Off From The Top Of His Head

Devon Staples died on the fourth of July after setting a firework tube off on top of his head in Calais, Maine. Staples, 22, was reportedly drinking at the time of the incident. He died instantly.

Maine Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland told WCSH6 Staples placed the fireworks mortar on his head then lit it around 10 p.m. on the holiday. His death is the first for Maine since the state first legalized fireworks in 2012.

"Apparently, he thought that was a great idea," McCausland told the Associated Press. "His friends they thought they dissuaded him from doing it, and the next thing they knew, he ignited the fireworks and he was killed instantly."

"Apparently, he thought that was a great idea,"

Kids, this is why studying physics is important.

Poor fellow, a true Darwin's Award candidate:

Man killed by giant 11ft alligator after ignoring warning signs and jumping into Texas bayou TAUNTED the beast before leaping into the water

Tommie Woodward, 28, suffered severe trauma to a limb when he was attacked early Friday morning at a private marina
Said 'blank the alligators' before jumping into the water, according to Orange County Justice of the Peace Rodney Price, likely censoring himself
Woodward's body was found nearby about two hours later
The marina's owner put up signs warning people not to swim after recently spotting a large alligator in the water several times
