Secret Service bodyguard comes to the rescue as baby elephant bumps Melania

A Secret Service agent rushed to the rescue of US First Lady Melania Trump after she was startled by a charging baby elephant.

Melania had on Friday joined her Kenyan counterpart Margaret Kenyatta in feeding baby elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

Mrs Trump almost fell over as she attempted to stroke a baby elephant that was rushing to one of its handlers.


A hawk-eyed Secret Service agent standing behind her moved in quickly to stop a back-peddling Melania from falling.

The awkward incident startled Melania, but she continued feed formula to two baby elephants.
