A disabled man living alone in a hut in Hathipura in Kaladiya in Puttalam was trampled to death by a wild elephant which had roamed into his home garden in the early 
hours yesterday.   


The victim Warnakula Stanley Fernando (43) had been living in a small house all alone after his wife had deserted him and his son found employment in a private institution 
in Anamaduwa.   


He had been disabled when a wild elephant attacked him about two months ago.   


Inquirer into Sudden Deaths Ayurvedic Physician- Nandana Wimalaweera who held the preliminary inquiry referred the body to the JMO of the Puttalam Base Hospital.
