THREE-YEAR-OLD JUMBO DIES CAUGHT IN RAGING WATERS IN HABARANA
Posted in Local News
The raging waters caused by the incessant rains spared no man nor beast in its path. When nature unleashed it fury across the land, this little pachyderm had little chance of survival.
The tiny jumbo got swept away by the raging floods. Whether he breathed his last by drowning or by getting his skull cracked when he hit this tree while being swept down, no one would ever know!
When the Newsfirst cameraman spotted him, he was dead, stuck among the branches of this tree in the Hathareskotuwa area in Habarana.
He was just three years old!

Natural disasters have struck earth for millions of years, affecting both man and beast. Dinosaurs were swept away from the face of earth by such disasters. All we can do, as intelligent beings, is to try to lessen disasters by not being the cause of it, such as causing green-house effect by polluting the atmosphere with noxious fumes through industrialisation.
Natural disaster(flood) has washed one third of the country in Sri Lanka.
