Six Elephants Die In Waterfall While Trying To Save Each Other

Six elephants drowned in a waterfall in Khao Yai National Park after wading into the water trying to save each other at around 3am on Saturday morning.

Park rangers found an elephant calf, aged around three years, drowned on the first tier of a waterfall. Two exhausted older elephants were spotted trying to help the calf.

National Parks Chief Khanchit Srinoppawan said officials arrived and found five more elephants drowned. Park staff used ropes to save two elephants that were stranded in the waterfall. Both were pulled out safely by 3pm.

They were still trying to save two more elephants stuck in the water. National Resources and Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa said similar accidents had happened before.

The waterfall, known as Haew Narok (Hell’s Fall), saw a herd of eight elephants die after falling in 1992. More than 300 wild elephants roam through the sprawling park, which covers more than 2,000 square km.
