'The boy was found lying unconscious some distance away by his friends who were filming his misadventure on their cell-phone cameras. But a fan tried to imitate the same with a real elephant and got flung by the animal. It makes for a truly disturbing sight.

Now the man is in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a hospital struggling for his life after his attempt to mount an elephant like "Baahubali". The overenthusiastic teenager thought he had become very friendly with the tusker by offering him some food.
