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. Credit: Ada Derana
