PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) -- A University of Utah student and two Spaniards were gored yesterday during the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

The University of Utah confirmed that the gored American was one of its students, Patrick Eccles. The local government press office gave his age as 20.

Navarra Hospital chief Javier Sesma said doctors removed Eccles' spleen after it was found that the bull's horn had gone through the abdominal cavity and punctured the organ.

Eccles is in stable condition.
