This baby elephant and his injured mother were stuck in a ditch. In the video, the baby elephant can be seen trying to wake her up as another elephant and its owner attempt to pull her out. Eventually a rescue team comes to help get both animals out of the ditch.

The rescue operation lasted eight hours and while the calf was immediately transported to Kaziranga National Park, the mother’s condition is still serious and vets are trying to stabilize her condition.
