A bull that broke from the pack seriously gored two American brothers, catching one on each of its horns during the running of the bulls festival in Pamplona, where both were recovering Friday in the hospital.

Lawrence and Michael Lenahan were gored simultaneously by the bull, which also injured 11 other people Thursday. It was the worst day for injuries in the nine-day festival.

"I started yelling at my brother to show him I was bleeding everywhere but he showed me he was bleeding everywhere," said Lawrence Lenahan, a 26-year-old Air Force captain from Hermosa Beach, Calif., in a telephone interview from his hospital bed.

He was gored in the buttocks, while Michael Lenahan, 23, of Philadelphia, was injured in his leg and was recovering well from surgery at the same hospital.

Michael Lenahan, a Northeast Philadelphia man and 2005 University of Pennsylvania graduate, has learned the hard way about the vagaries of life.
After recovering from a bout of testicular cancer late last year, Lenahan vowed to take an annual adventure trip starting this summer - when he would run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

"He decided he wanted to live life to the fullest because you don't know how much time you have," his father, Larry Lenahan, 53, of West Lake, Ohio, said today.

Lenahan, 23, a sales executive for General Mills in Dresher, and his brother Lawrence, 26, an Air Force captain, decided to make the trip together.

I don't want to make light of this guy's cancer. but if that bull had aimed a little lower he may not have had to worry about it reocurring.
