  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

As Paul Templer set off to lead a group on a kayaking trip down the Zambezi River, it seemed like just another day's work.

Then 27, Mr Templer was the owner of a river tour business and had been taking people on trips along the stretch of the Zambezi near Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe for many years.

But just a few hours later his life would be turned not only upside down, but upside down and head first up to his waist in a hippopotamus's throat.

  • If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!
