When Sea Creatures Attack

This patient’s medical card said he had been “attacked by sea creature”. After some discussion with the folks that brought the man from Walewale (54km away), we found out that a hippo had attacked him. It grabbed him in its mouth and flung him in the air. He had 7 or 8 broken ribs and was in serious shock. I’d be too after a sea creature attack like that!

  1. This dude is lucky to be alive. Hippos are actually incredibly dangerous. They don’t have the reputation of crocs but don’t get near them dang things! They don’t call them hungry hungry hippos for nothing
