The victim was pronounced dead on arrival at Longisa County Hospital where he was rushed by members of the public.

Longisa Hospital Administrator Felix Langat said the deceased sustained injuries on his stomach.

He said though he is out of danger, doctors are battling to treat the injuries.

“It’s unfortunate that one of the two who were brought was pronounced dead on arrival,” he said.

The herd of 10 elephants strayed into Lelaitich village from Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) officials said a biting drought at the game reserve may have driven the herd out in search of food.
