A bull killed a 63-year-old farmhand after tossing him 10 meters through the air and goring him against a brick wall, police said Monday.

The man died after the 1-ton bull ruptured his aorta when it jammed him against the wall on a farmyard in Shiga Prefecture on Saturday.

The man had been trying to yoke the animal so he could milk a nearby cow when it flung him through the air before pinning him against the wall, local media reported.
