A woman is in a serious condition after being attacked by a rhino at a game park in Roodepoort, Gauteng paramedics said.

The rhino struck the 24-year-old in the chest with its horn, said Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said today.

“Paramedics arrived at the scene and found her to be in a serious condition and in severe pain,” said Botha.

“She was stabilised on scene and transported her to the Netcare Krugersdorp hospital for the care that she required.”

It was unclear what triggered the attack.
