Animals escape from amusement park
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Six elephants escaped from an amusement park Wednesday and injured a woman as they rampaged through the South Korean capital, officials said. All of the animals were eventually captured and returned to the park.

One elephant charged into an alley near an elementary school and hit a 52-year-old woman, Roh In-sun, with its trunk, Yonhap news agency said. She was being treated at a hospital.

"She fell, and I ran away because I was scared," said Roh's landlord, Lee Hye-ja, who was standing with her when the elephant came charging toward them.

Television footage showed one elephant breaking a glass door to enter a nearby restaurant.

"Three elephants came into the restaurant... I hid in the closet," said Choi Yoon-sun, the owner of the restaurant told South Korea's MBC news. Another elephant was seen at one time standing on a small garden of a house.

The elephants were able to run away due to the "zookeeper's carelessness" on the circus compound at the Childrens' Grand Park, police said, reportedly escaping during a daily show.
