MAN DOWN: Philly Sales Exec Gored In Pamplona

MADRID, Spain — Two American brothers were recovering on Friday from their serious injuries after they were gored during the bloodiest day yet at the San Fermin festival in the northeastern city of Pamplona.goredman.jpgLawrence Lenahan, 26, of Hermosa Beach, Calif. and his brother, Michael Lenahan, 23, of Philadelphia, Pa. were gored Thursday by a bull who strayed from the pack, turned around half way and charged the wrong way during the daily morning bull run. Thirteen people in total were injured and seven were gored, including the Lenahan brothers and other two men very seriously.

Michael Lenahan, a sales executive for General Mills, was injured shortly before the bull ring — the end point of the daily runs — after the bulls horn entered beneath his skin in his right shin, causing him to recoil back, jaw open. The moment, caught on film, made the front page of several Spanish newspapers.
