Christian LeBlanc, a 22-year-old college student, was studying abroad in Thailand with his girlfriend. While sight-seeing on Koh Phangan Island, they came across a couple of elephants. The two bought bananas nearby to feed the regal mammals. When LeBlanc ran out, one of the elephants grabbed his GoPro camera by its mount.
