An accident at a bullfight in Colombia killed six people and injured more than 200.

Several stands collapsed when fans watched a bullfight in El Espinal, Colombia, on Sunday, the Tolima Civil Defense told ABC News.

More than 200 individuals were injured, 10 of them seriously, according to Tolima Civil Defense.

It’s unknown why the stands collapsed. No additional details were available.

In recent years, bullfighting’s ethics have been criticized because the bull is killed at the end. A judge in Mexico City banned bullfighting permanently earlier this month after complaints that the activity violated people’ rights to a healthy, violence-free environment, according to the AP.

A ban in Mexico City might terminate 500 years of bullfighting in Mexico and harm the sport abroad, the AP said.
