Nairobi, Kenya — An American woman and her baby daughter were trampled to death by an elephant while on a forest hike in Kenya, a spokeswoman for the Kenya Wildlife Service said Wednesday.
It happened Monday when the mother and child took part in a guided walk near the Castle Forest Lodge, about 65 miles north of Nairobi, Kenya, said Melia Van Leer, a spokeswoman for the lodge.
The mother, Sharon Brown, worked in the library of the International School of Kenya, according to a security guard at the school. Her husband, Jeff Brown, also worked at the school, the security guard said. He was listed on the school Web site as a fifth-grade teacher.
