British Tourist trampled to death by elephant at Tamil Nadu nature reserve

A British tourist has been trampled to death by an elephant as he took photographs at a wildlife resort in Tamil Nadu.

The 68-year-old man, named in reports as Colin Manvell, died at the Masinagudi National Park on Wednesday.

He is believed to have been taking pictures of an elephant in a river when two jumbos attacked him from behind, the Press Trust of India quoted police as saying.

He was reportedly "fully focused" and did not hear warnings from other tourists.

One of the elephants is understood to have trampled his legs and abdomen, the report said.

Mr Manvell was taken to the local Masinagudi hospital before being transferred to Gudalur Government Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead, the Times of India reported.

The Foreign Office confirmed the death, saying: "We are aware of the tragic death of a British national in southern India and we are providing consular assistance at this difficult time."

An inspector at Masinagudi police station told the Times that officers had not yet inspected the area where the man was killed.

He said: "We will be able to ascertain whether the place is a reserve forest area or social forestry area only after we inspect the spot where the unfortunate incident happened.

"We will inspect the place overnight and will register a case accordingly."

Local guides sought help from the nearby Sagadevan resort, where the man, who had flown to the country from London - was staying.
