A GROOM was trampled to death by a stampeding elephant in front of his bride on their safari honeymoon.
Patrick Smith, 34, died instantly as the panicking seven-ton beast crushed him at Kenya’s famous Masai Mara game reserve.
Horrified Julie, 35, managed to leap clear. Their Maasi guide was also mown down but survived.
The couple, from Purley, Surrey, wed in London last week and had been planning to start a family.
Last night experts called it a “terrible, tragic accident”.
Jake Grieves-Cook of Kenya’s tourist board said: “The Smiths didn’t do anything wrong. They were downwind, with a very experienced guide and thought they were safe.
“A herd of elephants were startled by something and charged. Elephants have very poor eyesight so this was not an attack. They just happened to be in the path of a spooked elephant.
“Mr Smith was crushed as it trampled over him and kept on running. The guide was knocked over but escaped with no injuries.”
