Swiss woman killed in elephant brawl

http://www.thelocal.ch/page/view/46#.UOqoM6zzh8E

"An elderly Swiss woman was trampled to death and four other tourists were injured when elephants they were riding fought with each other in Thailand, police said on Thursday.

The 63-year-old woman"

63 is elderly?

The report doesn't seem to mention that she dived from the elephant launching herself into a commando roll?

Which means it happened sometime early 1958. Probably late Spring.

I can imagine the similarity between being a stoned teenager and senitility.
