Hluhluwe Park is very popular with tourists. Then a terrible accident happened. Nothing is known about the background.

A toddler has been trampled to death by a giraffe at a wildlife park in South Africa, leaving the child’s mother seriously injured. An investigation should clarify how it came about, said a police spokeswoman on Thursday. The 16-month-old toddler succumbed to his injuries immediately after the incident on Wednesday afternoon. The child’s 25-year-old mother is still being treated in hospital.

It is very rare for giraffes to attack humans. The operator of the wildlife park declined to comment on the German Press Agency. Hluhluwe Park is around 270 kilometers northeast of the port city of Durban in the Kwazulu-Natal province, which is popular with tourists. According to the website, in addition to giraffes and other animals, visitors can also observe the so-called Big Five: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffaloes. According to the park, it is one of the oldest in South Africa. dpa
