PERU -- A female apprentice Mexican matador was injured when a bull gored her during a bullfight in Peru on Tuesday. Video of the incident shows Melina de la Parra being thrown to the ground and then pinned under the bull's horns.

Assistant bull fighters jumped into action, distracting the bull long enough for de la Parra to get up and walk out of the ring. She suffered unknown injuries and appeared to have blood stains on her clothes as she exited the ring.

She has been listed in stable condition.
