Tourists in South Africa got an even closer view of a wild animal encounter than they counted on following a mad elephant flipping over a family’s vehicle with all of them inside.
The occurrence took place after a bull elephant plowed into a family of 4’s SUV that included a pair of children and their mom and dad that were driving at the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, located in the KwaZulu-Nata province.
The irritated elephant was observed upending their white-colored Ford SUV during the horrifying incident.
The frightened sightseers beeped their horns in vain at the angry tusker, which goes ahead and rolls the automobile onto its rooftop.
Desperate to save the travelers from the tusker’s rage, the vehicle driver says to a woman passenger to “phone them,” to which she responds “I don’t know who to phone.”
Fortunately, the family got away with only minor injuries during the attack incident, but they felt a bit shocked at the situation.
iSimangaliso Wetland Park officials made the promise to launch an investigation into what caused the elephant to have such a violent reaction.
A vehicle getting beaten down by an elephant has happened before. Back in September of last year, an elephant in India was video recorded smashing a bus’s windshield with its tusks.
