An elephant has trampled and killed a British tourist on his honeymoon in Kenya.
Patrick Smith, aged 34, was killed in front of his wife in the Masai Mara National Reserve yesterday.
"He was trampled by an elephant while on a nature trail with his wife," said Connie Maina, spokeswoman for the Kenya Wildlife Service. "This is a terrible accident."
The couple had been married for just a week.
They had arrived in Kenya for their honeymoon and were staying at the luxury Richard's Camp lodge in the game reserve. The camp is on the edge of a forest in the Masai Mara conservation area.
The couple set out for their nature walk on Sunday morning and were with an escort just 300 yards outside the camp when the elephant attacked, Maina said.
"We think the elephant must have been at very close proximity to the couple and was surprised," she said. "They don't normally do this kind of thing."
