Baby Elephant Given CPR After Being Hit By A Motorbike

The dramatic moment paramedics performed CPR on a baby elephant after it was hit by a motorbike was caught on camera and has now been widely shared around the world.

The one-month-old jumbo was knocked to the ground and crying in pain after a rider crashed into it in Chanthaburi province on December 19.

The elephant was injured while the motorcyclist, Anan Cherdsoongnern, 53, was flung through the air and hit the ground some 20ft away.

The baby elephant was lying on its side while crying loudly which was heard by staff at the nearby Forest Fire Control office.

A passing driver called the emergency services and paramedics who were nearby at the time raced to the scene to treat the elephant.

As the baby elephant was starting to lose consciousness and had a faint pulse, one of the volunteers began performing a CPR on the animal.

Its pulse slowly returned, but it still could not stand up properly while the other medics carried the injured rider on a stretcher. The baby elephant was seen able to stand after a few moments although it still could not walk properly.



While everyone was busy helping the injured, the mother elephant emerged from the forest at the roadside and went straight to her child. She then ushered it back into the forest with her.

The mother jumbo went straight for the injured elephant and carried it back to the forest and left together.

One of the rescue team, Lek, said: “We gave the elephant first aid and then one of my colleagues had to perform CPR.

“It was such a nerve-wracking moment. I’m glad the baby survived its injuries and is together with its mother now.”

The paramedics let the mother take its baby and waited for them to leave while treating the injured motorcycle rider. He is now in hospital recovering from his injuries.

Lek added: ”It was dark when the crash happened. We think the young elephant was scared by something and ran into the road, but we will wait until the injured man to ask him exactly how it happened.”

Dinosaur Killed In Khon Kaen

Tragedy struck on Wednesday afternoon in Khon Kaen when a giant dinosaur was killed after municipal workers accidentally set it on fire.

A team of experts were sent tasked with the job of helping him move.

As they were putting their plan into action, a fire broke out burning the dino to death, despite the best efforts of firefighters to save its life.

A man with a metal cutter and strong winds are being blamed for the fatality.

Lonely Cats Get A Cuddle From Zookeepers As Covid Kills Tourism In Thailand

This is the heartwarming moment lonely tigers received hugs and cuddles from zookeepers after Covid-19 decimated tourism in Thailand.

Footage shows loving staff interacting with the animals at the Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai province earlier this month.

Since the coronavirus travel ban was put in place last March, the Tigers have had less human contact as fewer people had been visiting the zoo.

So to keep the big cats happy, tiger-keepers took them out to have showers, scrub them, brush their fur, and cuddle with them.



Zoo manager Pirom Jantama said: ‘A lot of these tigers are lonely due to the lack of tourists, if there are no tiger-keepers around, some of them start to cry and feel sad.’

More than 50 tigers are living in the zoo with different breeds including Bengal, Siberian, and Cheetahs ranging from seven months to seven-years-old.

Some of the popular tigers at the zoo are Buay, Bank, Chetar, Nammon and Namo, all of which receive regular cuddles from their keepers.

Beauty Pageant Takes Place In Front Of Empty Arena Due To Covid-19 Restrictions

This is the bizarre moment a beauty pageant was held without any audience due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Only the judges and some reporters were allowed to attend the 2021 Miss Chiang Mai pageant held last week.

Chairs were placed for hundreds of guests but were left empty as authorities fear the spreading of coronavirus.

The glamorous contestants answered questions and gave speeches to an almost deserted hall devoid of the usual cheering.

Even though there were no crowds, the event went live on Facebook so that people could still vote for their favourites.

At the end of the event, 22-year-old Pharmacy graduate Chonnikarn Pityaporn was crowned Miss Chiang Mai.

She said: ‘It’s still a special day for me even though there were no friends or family here to enjoy the moment with me.’
