Man hooked to mobile while walking, collides with elephant

Suresh Babu

A man, busy looking at his mobile phone, collided with an elephant while walking on a road. Though the elephant attacked him, he miraculously escaped.

Suresh Babu (46) of Balaji village was going on a morning walk at Chennangolli on Gonikoppa-Mysuru Highway on Tuesday when the incident occurred. It was only when the elephant threw him with its trunk, Suresh Babu realised that he rammed a tusker.

The elephant also stamped on him and after crossing the road, made its way into a plantation. Though the footprint of the elephant is imprinted on Suresh Babu's trouser, he has not suffered any injury.
