The victim was identified as Abdurrahman (50), Masmiko, a member of the the Karang Ampar-Bergang Masmiko Flora Fauna Security Team (TPFF) said here on Sunday.
"He died on Sunday at around 2 .a.m. local time, after his condition was critical and undergoing intensive treatment at the Datu Beru Takengon Hospital," he said.
Abdurrahman was trampled by the elephant on Saturday and suffered serious injuries all over his body owing to the attack of the large animal.
"The victim was trampled by a wild elephant on Saturday at around 12.00 WIB (Western Indonesian Standard Time). The victim was taken to the hospital. His condition was severe, his right leg was broken, his back ribs were also broken, he also had wounds on his head," Masmiko added.
The incident happened after local villagers had successfully herded away dozens of wild elephants. One elephant, however, had been left behind and Abdurrahman was trying to escort the elephant to the rest of the group.
