Six elephants have fallen to their deaths in Thailand while trying to save each other from a notorious waterfall.
Officials said the incident occurred after a baby elephant slipped over the waterfall in southern Thailand’s Khao Yai National Park.
Two other elephants have been spotted on a cliff edge nearby, and Thai authorities are trying to move them.
There have been similar incidents previously at the same waterfall, known locally as Haew Narok (Hell’s Fall).
A herd of eight elephants died after falling in 1992.
