UPI News Service, 02/26/2016
A baby elephant at a South African national park was saved from drowning after falling into a drainage well.
Video of the rescue Feb. 16 at Kruger National Park shows the exhausted baby elephant struggling to get out of the drainage well when two men came to help lift the small but heavy creature out of the water.
The elephant appeared exhausted but uninjured following the rescue.
"An Animal Rescue center was informed of the situation and the orphan elephant got a new home," the uploader wrote.
