American Woman Trampled by Elephants Was “Fearless” Researcher

The young American woman trampled to death by elephants in Thailand was a "fearless" outdoor researcher who knew how to handle dangerous animals, her family said Friday, NBC News reported. Lily Glidden's body was found in a forest five days after she went for a walk in the Kaeng Krachan National Park and never returned, police said. Her camera contained photos of wildlife and investigators believe she was crushed by elephants based on the nature of her injuries. "We believe that what happened to Lily was a result of unknowable and unusual circumstances which she must have been unable to foresee or prevent," her family said in a statement.
