Enraged Elephant

2001 Darwin Award Nominee
Unconfirmed by Darwin

(7 January 2001, Tanzania) Yet another safari tourist met with an early demise when she left the safety of the tour bus in order to frame a better picture. The woman, a volunteer with the US Peace Corps, and her camera were fatally trampled by an enraged elephant in Ruaha National Park. Let her fate remind you to "keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times."
