, AP Online

The first elephant born in Singapore's zoo died suddenly 15 months after it miraculously survived breaking its leg and undergoing surgery, the zoo said Saturday. Zookeepers are baffled as to what caused the death. A post-mortem should give results next week, said Priscilla Yim-Stacey, spokesman for the Singapore Zoological Gardens. Sri Utama, which means First Lady in Tamil, was one of the worlds endangered Asian elephants, often used as beasts of labor. There are fewer than 30,000 in the wild.
