Coimbatore : A private hospital employee was killed by a wild elephant late last night at Thoppampatti on the outskirts.

Two youths aged 27 were sitting and talking near Ganapathi Garden last night when an elephant came down from a hill near the CRPF camp.

While the two took to heels, the elephant caught hold of Prem Karthik, hurled him down and trampled him to death. Prem worked in a private hospital in Kuniyamuthur in the city. His friend, Vignesh, who managed to escape, informed the the villagers who in turn informed police and forest department officials.
