VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, Rwanda, July 22 (UPI) — A woman celebrating her honeymoon on safari in Rwanda was shoved to the ground by a gorilla while her husband filmed with a head-mounted camera.

Damien and Gemma Cosgriff were taking a safari tour at Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda as part of their honeymoon trip when their group stopped to observe some silverback gorillas.

The couple said the group observed the gorillas for about 40 minutes before one gorilla, the male head of the family, beat his chest and charged toward the humans.
The gorilla gave Gemma a one-handed shove, knocking her to the ground, before continuing on his way.

The shove was recorded on video by Damien, who was wearing a GoPro camera on his head.

The couple said Gemma was not injured and "found humor in the whole incident."
