Tourists trampled to death by elephant while on safari at popular African resort

The shocking incident happened at the Maramba River Lodge in Livingstone, in Southern Province, Zambia.

Spokesman Danny Mwale of the Zambian Police Service said that a 57-year-old Belgium woman and a 64-year-old man from the Netherlands were killed after getting too close to an elephant because they wanted to take pictures up close.

According to the Zambian police, both tourists had multiple injuries all over their bodies after being trampled by the elephant.

Dutch and Belgian media identified the two deceased as Sabine Goossens, a Belgian woman who had lived in Africa for 10 years, and a Dutch friend of hers called Wim Van Griensven, from the city of Roermond, in the province of Limburg, in the Netherlands.
