Wikus Ceronie from South Africa was crossing the border from Kruger National Park when he noticed a hippo on the bridge. The animal was looking calm so he assumed it was used to humans. But, as he got closer, the hippo, which was standing on the side of the road, spotted Wikus and turned to him. The situation became terrifying….
The disgruntled beast started charging at Wikus’s truck and smashed right into it. The vehicle ended badly damaged but fortunately he went without injuries.
Wikus admitted later that he did fear for his life during the attack. It certainly looked very dangerous and who would not get scared in this kind of situation? I mean you don’t get to collide with a hippo every day.
