ITALIAN TOURIST KILLED BY ELEPHANT IN TSAVO NATIONAL PARK

A 66 year old Italian tourist, Fernando Mocclola, was trampled to death by an elephant he was photographing at Swara camp in the Tsavo National Park.

According to the police Fernando, who had been booked at the camp together with his wife, had moved from his tent close to the elephant to take a photograph of the elephant, which was near the Sabaki River.

“He excused him while taking breakfast with the wife and proceeded to water point and started taking pictures, provoking the elephant that charged towards him and attacked him seriously wounding him,” said Malindi Police chief Muchangi Mutava.

The tourist is reported to have sustained serious injuries and died before he could be taken to hospital.
