Chris Bowie, 29, from West Palm Beach, Florida, was dragged off his boat and pulled 30ft under by a blue marlin when his hands became tangled in the line during a contest off North Carolina.

She then walked off into the jungle, leaving about 200 passengers stranded for over 5 hours. The extent of the baby elephant's injuries were not known.'
