After exploding, in order to get some relief for the blood flowing mouth, it might have settled in the river and left the soul. The death of the elephant in a standing position in the river is a heart-touching sadness for any human with humanity.
As per the details mentioned in the post, the elephant has suffered from mouth and tongue injuries. After the postmortem, the facts were more heart drowning.
