Elephants in a religious parade stampeded through a crowd, injuring at least 17
More than a dozen people were trampled by elephants during a parade in sri lanka saturday.
One of the elephants was spooked during the procession -- which startled another animal.
17 people were taken to the hospital -- the extent of their injuries isn't know.
The parade continued after the incident.
For the past 119 years the area has held a procession in honor of the sacred relic of the tooth of buddha.
