This is the photo taken seconds before a safari tourist was seriously injured by a rhino - after she was allegedly urged to stand closer to the animal by a wildlife expert.
Chantal Beyer, 24, was visiting the South African nature park with her husband when they stopped to look at some rhinos. He allegedly told a group of visitors to get out of their vehicle to take photos and even encouraged the rhinos to come closer with food. The photograph shows them only feet away from two white rhinos which can weigh up to two tons and stand as tall as 1.8metres.
Just after the picture was taken, a huge bull rhino attacked, and its horn penetrated Ms Beyers' chest from behind, resulting in a collapsed lung and broken ribs. Shes in the intensive care unit at Krugersdorp Hospital. What a silly gamble, i trust my naija people they would tell the tour guide to stand next to the rhino so they could take the iconic picture. I pray she recovers soon. Amen.
