Panic on bus as elephant herd comes face-to-face with passengers in southern India

This is the moment a herd of elephants blocks the road and come face to face with a bus loaded with passengers.

The incident took place near Thengumarahada in South India on February 11.

The driver of a Tamil Nadu State Road Transport Corporation bus, which was heading to Ooty, came across the herd and stopped the vehicle at a distance.

Many passengers panicked and asked him to turn back. He can be heard in the video assuring them that 'nothing will happen.'

The herd drew close and a few elephants even approached the bus menacingly making grunting sounds.

But luckily for the passengers, the elephants went away on their own after standing on the road for some time.
