To be honest this did not disturb or surprise me. We, Sri Lankans, have a way with elephants. Not sure what the situation is like now but when I was growing up in Ceylon (before the name got changed) elephants were not strangers to us. We would see and interact with domesticated elephants, especially at Buddhist temples, on a fairly regular basis and I, thanks to all the travelling we did, year around, had seen wild elephants.

Not 100% sure about this incident. Seems slightly staged. Lot of adults standing behind her and there is no true indication that this was a wild elephant per se. A very well paved road (though you can come across elephants in Sri Lanka in many areas). Elephants are NOT killers. Why would they attack a human if they didn’t have to? The little girl is obviously not a threat.

This is cool. This is Ceylon.
