VIVER, SPAIN — A bull charged through the front door of a house and fatally gored an 82-year-old woman as she played cards with friends, residents said Monday.

Timotea Martinez and her friends were sitting in the kitchen of her house in this small southeastern town on Sunday when the bull broke in and knocked her against the wall, repeatedly goring her, neighbor Pilar Marciano said.

The bull was part of Viver's annual village festival.

Martinez died Sunday night in hospital in the nearby city of Valencia.

The bull had escaped from a temporary bullring set up in the village square to stage bullfights as part of Viver's annual festival.
