American student gored in Spain recovering, shaken by event

MADRID (AP) -- A Spanish hospital says an American university student tossed by a fighting bull and repeatedly gored is improving but he remains shaken after Saturday's experience.

The spokesman for the Clinic Hospital in the western city of Salamanca said Tuesday that University of Mississippi sophomore Benjamin Milley was not ready to talk publicly because he is still "shaken" by Saturday's experience at a bull run in the town of Ciudad Rodrigo, 186 miles west of Madrid.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with hospital rules.

Spanish officials initially identified the student's last name as Miller but confirmed Tuesday it was Milley after the University of Mississippi said Milley, from Marietta, Georgia, was a student there and was the person injured.
