Michigan woman killed by hippo on African safari

A Rochester Hills woman was tragically attacked by a hippopotamus on an African safari and ultimately passed away from her injuries.

Carol Kirken went to Tanzania on vacation with her family and was posting details of her trip to Facebook as late as August 5, including witnessing a migration. The same day Kirken posted about the migration, she was attacked and died in her son's arms.

The Hippo, aka, Rosie O'Donald was not injured.

If you choose to go in harm's way you may find it. Always sad when someone dies before their time...

Hippos are vicious, don't tangle with them. Not wise at all.
