German man in Pattaya seriously injured after being attacked by an elephant

A German man suffered serious injuries after being attacked by an elephant in Pattaya on Saturday morning.

The 69 year old man was cycling along Soi Nong Mai Kaen in Nong Prue, which runs by an elephant village.

Thai media reported the man cycles the route everyday, only today, he was confronted by an elephant.

Despite locals and members of staff from the elephant village warning the man to leave the area, he stayed.

The elephant then became more distressed and charged, resulting in serious injuries to his German man’s leg.

The German man received first aid at the scene and was then transferred to hospital for further treatment.

Vets later managed to subdue the elephant by shooting him with a tranquilliser dart.

An investigation into why the elephant attacked the German has been launched.

The elephant had recently been brought to Pattaya to perform for tourists.
