Photo: Couple's snapshot before being gored by rhino

Allegedly urged by a tour guide, the pair were standing near two rhinos to take a picture when they were attacked

By Steve Robson Daily Mail

JOHANNESBURG — This is the photo taken seconds before a safari tourist was seriously injured by a rhino - after she was allegedly urged to stand closer to the animal by a wildlife expert.

Chantal Beyer, 24, was visiting the South African nature park with her boyfriend when they stopped to look at some rhinos.

Afrikaans-language newspaper the Beeld reported that guide Alex Richter then advised them to stand a little closer seconds before the animal gored her from behind.
