    Spanish bullfighter Julio Aparicio is in critical condition after being gored through the throat by a bull Friday.

        "[The horn] went though the tongue and penetrated the roof of the mouth, fracturing the jawbone," one of the medics who worked on Aparicio told AFP news in Madrid.

        The Seville native, a member of a well-known family of matadors, was in grave condition last night but expected to survive.

        "We don't have a reason to fear for his life, although he will have a very slow recuperation," Dr. Maximo Garcia Padros told El Pais newspaper.

    Aparicio fell during the part of the match where the matador uses his cape and sword to entertain the crowd before delivering the death blow.

    If you have the stomach for it, you can look at the video here.

    He's bloody lucky it came out through the front of his mouth and didn't go through the roof into his underdeveloped brain.
