    Elephant Kills Woman in S. Africa

The Associated Press Friday, March 23, 2001; 2:54 p.m. EST

PIETERSBURG, South Africa An elephant trampled a woman to death near a wildlife park in northeastern South Africa, police said Friday.

Ngwahlandei Lungwani, 50, and her husband were walking in a field near the Kruger National Park when the elephant emerged from a thicket and attacked them, said police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe.

The couple ran in separate directions. The elephant followed the woman, while her husband ran to a nearby school to seek help. Police later found Lungwani's body, crushed and torn apart.

The elephant was found several hours later and killed.

It was unclear what the elephant was doing outside the park fence.
