Surin man stomped by elephant


A 50-year-old man was stomped to death by an elephant near the venue of a merit-making ceremony during which Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra offered alms to monks mounted on elephants in Muang district of Surin province on Monday morning, reports said.

The attack occurred about 7.30am inside Wat Chumpolsuthawas, about 200 metres from where the prime minister was to offer alms to monks seated on the backs of elephants near the  monument of Phraya Surin Phakdisrinarong Changwang.

The reports said that before the incident  a man, who was not identified, wearing grey shorts but without a shirt, climbed up a tree on one side of the monument, about 20m from where Ms Yingluck would offer alms.

The man was ordered to climb down by police and then went into Wat Chumpolsuthawas and began playing with one of the elephants chained inside the grounds.

The elephant took the man in its trunk and threw him up in the air. When he fell to the ground, the elephant stomped on him.

Mahouts in the area rushed to help him and managed to stop the elephant's atack, but the man was already seriously injured, suffering from broken bones to many parts of his body.

Guess he hadn't made enough merit previously and the spirits got their revenge using the elephant as a conduit of their contempt and justice, of course.  ::)
