One person was horned and several people were injured during the sixth running of the bulls of the San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spanish authorities said Tuesday. 

A total of eight people were treated for injuries, including a Spaniard who was horned in the left armpit, the regional government of Navarre said, according to a report published by the Associated Press. Health authorities initially reported five people were injured.

During Tuesday's running of the bulls, which lasted just over two minutes, a bull charged a young girl from behind, knocking her to the ground, and then threw another runner into the air.

Another runner was dragged along the ground for several meters after a bull hooked the back of his shirt with its horn.

In total, the Daily Mail recalled that four people have been horned during the six San Fermin running of the bulls this year.

In another running that occurred on Monday, an American man and two Spaniards were horned during the fifth running of the bulls in Pamplona.

The fighting bulls, which ideally go in a compact herd to guard the integrity of the runners, are separated into several groups. In this instance, one of them fell behind, which made this running of the bulls particularly unpredictable and difficult.

Several runners also fell to the ground as the bulls chased them through the narrow streets of the northern Spanish city, EFE noted.

Television images showed the moment when a bull repeatedly charged one of the runners. He was a 29-year-old Spaniard, who was gored in the knee.

Two other men were injured by a bull horn inside the bullring at the end of the 850-meter run, the government of the Navarra region said in a statement.
