(14 May 2000, France) A Berlin woman attempting to capture a memorable photo of the Running Bulls in the southern town of Nimes paid for her stupidity with her life on Sunday. The 68-year-old photographer removed a metal safety barricade and stood in the middle of the street with her camera to her eye, searching for the best camera angle. She was knocked over by a horse whose startled rider could not stop in time, then trampled by the horse and six rampaging bulls before being rescued from the street. She was flow to a nearby hospital, where she died from her injuries.
