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.
