With more than 1.2 million views and 1,660 retweets, a video of a wild elephant wreaking havoc on the streets of India's West Bengal has gone viral, leaving netizens stunned.
A scene from the movie 'Jumanji' where wild animals suddenly appear and go on the rampage, literally came to life in India after a wild elephant in West Bengal state was found running on the street, scaring away people and animals around.
The CCTV footage which has gone viral shows a group of people in Hooghly district standing in front of a medical store just as an elephant arrives running towards them.
A man tries to flee the scene along with his parked scooter. But just as he starts it, he realizes he's already too late to save his vehicle. The furious jumbo comes straight toward his motorbike and a bicycle standing nearby and smashes them to the floor.
The elephant's charge provoked mayhem, causing people to run for their lives. But in the melee, an aged lady gets hurt after being pushed by the giant jumbo.
