According to reports, the elephant collapsed of a fatal heart attack after ferrying two tourists – one at a time – to a temple in the famous Angkor Wat complex.

Apparently, she had been working for 40 minutes in temperatures reaching 40 degrees.

A veterinarian concluded that the animal had died of a heart attack “due to high temperatures, heat exhaustion and lack of wind that would have helped to cool her.”

RIP Sambo.
