BOGOTA — Four people were killed and about 70 injured on Sunday when part of a stand collapsed at a bullring in the town of El Espinal, Colombia, provincial officials said.
Videos posted on social media showed the section of the stand toppling forward into the ring, where locals were participating in a bull-running event tied to the feast day of Saint Peter and Saint Paul.
“There are four dead at this moment – two women, a man and a minor,” Tolima provincial governor Jose Ricardo Orozco told local Blu Radio.
