Here’s a crazy story from the Daily MailA 70-year-old woman was getting water in Eastern India when an elephant trampled her. The elephant had escaped from a sanctuary earlier that day. Sadly it ran up and Maya Murmu later died in the hospital from her injuries.  Then it gets even weirder…

Her family organized a funeral for her that evening.

As her body lay on top of her funeral pyre, the elephant came walking up again. It took her body down off the pyre, and then trampled her again before throwing her body around and walking off into the night. The family finished the ceremony after the elephant left; around 100 people are killed by elephants every year in India.
