Safari HORROR: Briton’s heartbreak as wife and son, 3, fight for life after giraffe attack

Earlier this year at cameraman on British TV show Wild at Heart was killed by a giraffe as he filmed at the Glen Africa game reserve in Broederstroom in North West Province.

South African film maker Carlos Carvalho, 47, was knocked 16 feet through the air when the giraffe slammed into him with his neck and died of his injuries later in hospital.

The TV series featuring a British family running an animal hospital in the African bush was filmed at Glen Africa for many years and Mr Carvalho had worked on most episodes.

The giraffe that killed him called Gerald is said to have attacked others in the past.

Giraffes grow up to 119 feet tall and can weigh over a ton and are the world’s tallest mammal and males become aggressive in mating season and females wheb protecting their young.

The giraffe attacked Dr Katy Williams and her son Finn as they waited close to the family home for her husband to return from his evening trail run in the hills around the nature reserve.

The mother and son often waited for him to return and it was a regular treat for Finn.
