Melvin Valverde Villalobos lost his life in the bull ring in the Palmares Festival Monday night. The 26 year old “improvisado” (amateur) bullfighter – well in reality part of a bunch of guys runnig in front of and away from the bull – was thrown in the air and snapped his neck bouncing on the dirt.

Valverde, like dozens every evening during festivals around the country, entered the bullring with a group of friends. This was his first time.

The Cruz Roja (Red Cross) said the young man did not survive the neck wound despite being rushed to hospital.

The death has re-awakened call to end the improvised games.
