Miller had to undergo a three-hour surgery for injuries to his sphincter, thighs, and back.

"It's not the worst injury I've seen, but it's the biggest goring wound I've ever had to operate on," his surgeon, Enrique Crespo, told the AP.


Two other people, a Scottish native and a Spaniard, also sustained less serious injuries at the same festival, according to the AP.

A town official told the AP that 45,000 to 50,000 people were attending the town's four-day event.
