THE father of a Huddersfield student nurse killed by a rampaging elephant in Thailand has won £66,000 damages.
Andrea Taylor, 20, died in 2000 after being gored during a show at the privately-run Suan Nong Nuch park in Pattaya, south-east of the capital, Bangkok.
But her father, Geoff, 63, hit out at the size of the payout, saying it would do nothing to ensure safety standards.
He added: "It seems the price of life is cheap in Thailand, very cheap.
"I have been fighting rich Thais who place no value on my daughter and family."
His other daughter, Helen, 23, suffered serious internal injuries as the family holiday turned to nightmare.
Mr Taylor was also hurt as they tried to rescue her.
The family, from Billinge, near Wigan, were sitting in the front row when the 18-year-old elephant went berserk.
Widower Mr Taylor remortgaged his home to fight the case, vowing that lessons had to be learned.
There were no proper barriers and the rogue elephant repeatedly butted spectators with its head and tusks.
Andrea was a second-year student at Huddersfield University.
Lecturers described her as friendly and responsible and said she would have been a credit to nursing.
She had been on placement with a Huddersfield nursing home and was thinking of specialising in children's nursing.
An inquest in Britain saw harrowing video footage taken by an amateur cameraman.
Describing what happened as he comforted his daughter Mr Taylor told the hearing: "She said: `Don't let anyone move me, dad. There's something wrong with my back'."
She died of massive internal injuries as Mr Taylor comforted her.
He said yesterday: "Not once have any of the owners of this company even bothered to come to court.
"Not once have they said to me they are sorry."
