Man killed in Paris elephant attack

A man of 84 years old was mortally wounded at the weekend in the Lizy-sur-Ourcq area, a town about 50 kilometres from Paris, when he was hit by an elephant.

The elephant is believed to have escaped from a fenced enclosure of a circus in the town, before charging at the man, hitting him with a tusk and throwing him to the ground.

The victim was taken to hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries.
