eTurboNews : German tourist badly injured by white rhino in SA park

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - A white rhino badly injured one German tourist when it charged a group of visitors on a morning walk in South Africa's famous Kruger National Park, authorities said Wednesday.

The wildlife enthusiasts, accompanied by armed rangers scurried for cover when the rhino -- with a calf -- charged the group on Monday, catching up with the victim who was hiding behind a rock.

She sustained injuries to her ankles, ribs and bruises to her body and was airlifted to hospital.

"This was a very unfortunate incident, but we are glad that she survived and we wish her a speedy recovery" said Sithembile Mhlophe, the park's regional general manager.

The giant beast only retreated after the rangers fired shots to scare it off.

Park officials said the cow was injured during the process.

The Kruger National Park is South Africa's premier safari destination and it boasts the largest rhino population in the country.

Guided trail walks in the park are popular with tourists who want to get a closer look of Africa's big game.
