American tourist (80) killed in elephant attack while on safari

On a recent car safari in Zambia, an 80-year-old American woman was attacked by an elephant. The incident occurred in the Kafue National Park last weekend while she and five other tourists were being guided through the park.

As they drove, the elephant, which had become separated from its herd, began chasing the vehicle. One of the tourists captured a video of the terrifying moment when the elephant pursued them. The driver was forced to stop due to a road blockade caused by vegetation.

The elephant then tipped the vehicle onto its side, resulting in the tragic death of the 80-year-old woman and serious injuries to another tourist. The remaining tourists sustained minor injuries and are receiving trauma counseling.

The CEO of the company that organized the safari expressed condolences to the family of the deceased woman and offered support to those involved in the incident. The shocking images of the attack have circulated on social media, highlighting the dangers that can arise during wildlife encounters.

It is important for tourists who go on safaris to be aware of these risks and take necessary precautions to ensure their safety while exploring nature’s beauty.
