Four killed when stands collapse during Colombian bullfight

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) – Part of the wooden stands collapsed during a bullfight in central Colombia on Sunday, sending spectators plunging to the ground and killing at least four people and injuring hundreds, authorities said.

The disaster took place in a stadium in the city of El Espinal in Tolima state during a traditional event called corraleja in which members of the public enter the ring to engage the bulls.

Videos taken during the bullfight show a multi-storey section of the stands collapsing as people screamed.
