A woman was close to losing her leg after being attacked by a 10,000-pound hippo while on vacation in South Africa, according to reports.
Kristen Yaldor and her husband Ryan Yaldor were on vacation in Zimbabwe, Africa when their canoe was capsized by a lurking mother hippo. The married couple was on a safari excursion when Wild Horizon guides noticed a group of hippos nearby. Tour operators said the hippo dragged Yaldor below after she attempted to swim ashore.
As a result of the attack, Yaldor was left with a fractured femur. She was airlifted for medical assistance to a hospital in Johannesburg. Yaldor has had multiple surgeries and will possibly need more.
