Used in the middle ages, this punishment was also known as pressing. The victim – lying down and held in place so they can’t move under a board or door. Then weights or rocks would be placed on-top, crushing bone and organs. However, in India they used an elephant…

An enemy would be roped up, kneeling on a rock or piece of wood. Then an elephant would crush them with it’s foot…or they’ll be ripped apart by its tusks. Some elephants were actually trained just to remove a victims limbs, one at a time with its trunk.
