BALLS: Man Gets Crushed By Giant Rolling Ball In Spain

Submitted by: fancylad 5 months ago in Weird


This "running of the balls" is a substitute for the running of the bulls. This guy got knocked into a coma anyway. As an animal-friendly alternative, authorities in the town of Mataelpino, near Madrid, replaced the bull with a 660 lb resin ball, decorated with the face of an angry bull.

Unfortunately, rolling such a huge resin ball down a hill towards people isn’t a particularly safe activity either. Two people ended up seriously injured after being crushed against the course’s fencing by the massive ball. One man had to be put into an induced coma, and another person suffered from three broken ribs.

Jeeze the Spanish are idiots.

Lets replace an unforgiving bull with horns, with an unforgiving fucking huge fibreglass ball.

The guys that got hurt.. well they were going to get hurt anyway. If it wasnt a ball, it would have been a bull. So best they are removed from the gene (ball) pool anyway.

stifler That is unless they participate because they believe it's some kind of soft and harmless ball instead of a bull.

No matter how safe you make an event, some idiot will find a way to get hurt.

Bear in mind, this PROBABLY wasn't all that safe so the idiots didn't even have to work hard.
