A bullfight gone terribly wrong.

Two men were killed and at least 15 others injured during a bullfight in northern Colombia Sunday.

It happened on the second day of a popular bullfighting festival on Colombia's Caribbean coast.

Doctors said this was one of the 2 victims, a 46-year-old man who died when the bull's horn gored through to his heart.

"Unfortunately the animal caught him by surprise and gored him. According to the doctors' report from the doctors who were there, it was a very deep stab to the heart."

A second man later died from injuries sustained while trying to subdue the raging bull.

Bullfighting is popular in this South American country, despite its risks and protests from animal rights activists.
