The authorities are fearing that the death toll will rise beyond the current tally of four fatalities.
The tragic incident occurred during a “corraleja” bullfighting festival, during which members of the public are invited to engage the bulls in the ring.
El Tiempo newspaper cites a local councillor as saying that the emergency services and hospitals were not able to handle the number of people injured following the collapse
“We need support from ambulances and neighbouring hospitals, many people are still unattended,” Iván Ferney Rojas said.
