|2017-03-12: Madee Wichai, a Thai national, was washing the animal with a colleague at Adventure World here when the animal hurled him against the metal bars of the cage.|
Wichai, 37, had worked at the zoo since 2015. He hit the bars with such force that he suffered severe trauma to his head and died from a brain contusion about an hour after he was admitted to a hospital.
The Asian elephant, a female named Rari that is 40 years old, was being washed by Wichai and another male zoo keeper aged 53 when the attack occurred around 9:15 a.m., before the zoo opened for the day, according to Shirahama police.
