Juan Luis Silis received a major goring in Pachuca this week, but incredibly is expected to make a total recovery and even return to the bulls should he desire. At this moment he is in a medically induced coma so reparations may be made on his jaw and face following this nightmare of a goring.
The torero was gored in the neck, with the horn extending through the interior of his face and by the eye.
Doctors have announced no evident damage to the brain or the eye. Though blood loss was tremendous, the torero's life has been saved mainly due tot he brilliance of the medics.
Decades ago, a going of the magnitude of this one would have surely been fatal.
