Afrikaans-language newspaper the Beeld is reporting Alex Richter, the couple’s guide, advised them to “stand closer” to the rhino just seconds before the gored her from behind.

“There were quite a few young people on the vehicle and they probably felt they could trust Richter, who was an adult,” Beyer’s uncle Thom Peeters told the paper.

Beyer is currently at Krugersdorp Hospital’s ICU in Roodepoort, South Africa, and is listed in stable condition, the paper reported.
