kills man and wife
Friday 13th April 2001
A wild elephant has killed a man and his wife in a forest in Malaysia.
The man, his wife and their daughter were walking home after a fishing trip near Dungun when the attack took place.
Ismail Abdul Rahman, 59 and his wife Aliah Ishak 59, were attacked by the elephant and killed.
Dungun is about 270 miles northeast of Kuala Lumpur.
Their daughter, Siti Aminah Ismail, 36, was injured in the attack and is being treated at the state hospital in Dungun.
Siti Aminah told the Bernama news agency that she warned her parents of the presence of the elephant.
The animal suddenly charged at them, grabbing her father with its trunk and throwing him to the ground.
It also came toward her, pushing her with its trunk before turning to her mother.
"I saw my mother running away with the elephant in pursuit. I thought she would escape," she said.
