Mr. Ferrando watched the & # 39; bous al carrer & # 39; event during the Virgen del Remedio festivities when the furious bull attacked him from behind.
The victim, who loved bull runs and had always lived in Lliria, was rushed to the hospital, but doctors couldn't save him.
The images show the streets of Lliria packed for bull racing with spectators protected in & # 39; cages & # 39; looking from a balcony or behind a barrier.

While Mr. Ferrando climbs the barriers, with his back to the bull, he is hit several times by the beast and thrown into the air like a rag doll.
Spectators rush to safety and quickly divert the bull from the victim before the animal runs inside the other side.
The festivities in Lliria have been bullless for six years and only came back this year. All of today's events have been suspended after the death.
The municipality expressed its deep regret at the death of Mr Ferrando and expressed his condolences to family and friends.
This is the fifth death in the region this year and the second in a week after the fatal murder of a spectator in the city of Alcora in Castellón. The other deaths were in Xilxes, Pinoso and Chiva.
