Four people died and hundreds were injured in the collapse of the bleachers at the bullfight in Colombia

Authorities said part of the wooden stands collapsed during a bullfight in central Colombia on Sunday, sending spectators to the ground, killing at least four people and injuring hundreds.

The crash took place at a stadium in the western city of El Espinal in the state of Tolima during a traditional event called “corraleja”, during which members of the public enter the ring to fight the bulls.

Videos filmed during the bullfight show the high-rise section of the stands collapsing as people scream.

“We have activated the network of hospitals in Tolima,” said the governor of Tolima. José Ricardo Orozco told local radio Blu. “Four people have died so far: two women, a man and a minor.”

Mayor Juan Carlos Tamayo said 800 spectators sat in the collapsed sections.

Late Sunday evening, Tolima Health Minister Marta Palacios said at a press conference that 322 people had gone to local public and private hospitals after the collapse in search of treatment. Palacio said the juvenile who died was 18 months old.

In addition to the four dead, four more people are in intensive care, two more are recovering from surgery.

Orozco said earlier Sunday he asked for the traditional “corralechs” in Tolima to be suspended, but this one went through anyway.

President-elect Gustavo Petro called on local authorities to ban such events, noting that this was not the first time such an incident had occurred.

“I ask the mayors not to allow any more events related to the death of people or animals,” he said.

The current president, Ivan Duque, announced on Twitter an investigation into the disaster.

“We mourn the terrible tragedy that took place in El Espinal, Tolima, during the San Pedro and San Juan festivals, with the collapse of the grandstands during the corraleja. We’ll call an investigation.”
