Bogota, Mar 23 (EFE).- President Juan Manuel Santos fell off a bicycle presented to him by victims of Colombia's internal armed conflict at a ceremony in the northwestern city of Apartado, but he was not hurt.
Santos used Saturday's accident to draw a comparison between what happened to him and his administration's efforts to assist victims of the country's internal conflict.
"In life, when you fall down, you have to get up and keep moving forward. That is what the victims in this country have to do," the president said.
