MADRID— 40 people were injured when a bull leapt into the packed grandstands of a Spanish bullring and ran amok on Thursday, regional official said.

Video shown on Spanish media outlets showed the bull jumping 10 meters (yards) from the ring into the stands causing panic as he lurched through the screaming crowd, charging and tossing everything he could.

The beast was brought under control after several minutes and later killed.

The incident occurred Wednesday at the Tafalla arena in the northern region of Navarra.

A local government statement said a 10-year-old boy was in intensive care at a hospital in the regional capital of Pamplona after the bull reportedly fell on him. Another man was gored in the back. Thirty-eight others suffered minor injuries.
