Elephant kills mother and baby
Wednesday 06 January 2010
A tourist and her baby were trampled to death by a rampaging elephant in Kenya.
American Sharon Brown, 39, was carrying her year old daughter on a nature trail when the animal appeared.
Melia van Laar, owner of the Castle Forest Lodge, where the family was staying, said they were walking with a guide about a mile from the lodge when the elephant emerged from the bush at full speed on Monday.
The group tried to run away but Ms Brown was not able to.
