From Sky News: A British couple are facing surgery for multiple injuries received falling from an elephant while on safari in South Africa.

The man and his wife are expected to undergo surgery for leg and pelvic fractures.

They were taken by ambulance to the Akasia Hospital in Pretoria where the woman is being treated for "quite severe" leg fractures while her husband mainly has pelvic injuries.

Staff working at the sanctuary, in the village of Hartbeespoort, said it was the first time there had been such an accident.

Was it some kind of elephant ride safari? Or did they run up and try to climb on a wild one?

You wouldn't believe some of the stuff I've seen European tourists attempt with wildlife here, nothing suprises me.
