Fandino, 36, fell to the ground and was gored by the bull known as Burp, according to the BBC.

Fandino, who was taking part in the Alre-sur-l'Adour bullfighting festival near Pau, had tripped on a cape used in a turn to engage and distract the specially bred fighting bull. During his transfer with the ambulance from the arena to the hospital, his heart stopped beating.

Immediately after his injury, he realized the seriousness of his condition: "Hurry to get me to the hospital, I die" was his last words.
