Man Suffers a Fatal Blow to Head by Giraffe

Last week, filmmaker Carlos Carvalho was killed on set in South America from a head trauma caused by a giraffe. Carvalho, 47, was filming at Glen Afric Country Lodge last Wednesday when he was struck and suffered a fatal blow to the head. The incident occurred when Carlos was attempting to film extra footage of Gerald the giraffe after filming with the other animals had come to an end. This was when Carlos was struck by the giraffe when it swung his head causing Carlos to be knocked off his feet. He then was flown to a nearby hospital but later succumbed to his injuries. Carvalho’s crew shares their condolences with his family and the lodge claims that Carlos may have gotten a little bit too close. Carlos left behind a family and 2 daughters.
