A 77-year-old woman from the U.K. died of injuries she sustained when struck by a spooked zebra, a new coroner’s report concluded. Eileen Whale was staying at a holiday center in Kenya last September when the pet zebra collided with her, tossing her in the air. She died in February.

The BBC News cited a coroner’s report of gastrointestinal bleeding and pancreatitis brought about by a series of complications following the collision.

At the time of the incident, the zebra was mingling with the crowd when it was spooked. It struck Whale, tossing her in the air. She was treated at an area hospital for 17 days before returning to the U.K. for additional treatment.
