Miraculous Rescue: 11 Elephants Saved from Flooded Crater in Cambodia

In a heartwarming rescue operation, eleven elephants, including a baby, were saved from a difficult situation in Cambodia.

The incident unfolded in the Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary in Mondulkiri Province, Cambodia, when the elephants wandered into a massive crater filled with water.

The crater, a remnant of a bomb blast during the Vietnam War, had steep 10-foot walls that proved impossible for the gentle giants, leaving them trapped.


Local residents quickly noticed the distressed elephants, nearly submerged in the water, and immediately sought help.

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) was alerted about the dire situation. Responding swiftly, WCS rescue workers devised a plan to aid the elephants.

The remarkable rescue was captured on video and has since garnered immense attention online, amassing over 20,000 views on Facebook alone.


The footage showcases the elephants working together, displaying their intelligence and cooperation, as they make their way up a ramp constructed by the rescue team.

The compassion and effort shown by the rescuers and the elephants’ solidarity in their escape from the muddy waters have touched the hearts of many.

Comments flooding in express gratitude for WCS and the caring locals who took action to save these magnificent creatures.


The successful rescue is a testament to the importance of wildlife conservation and highlights the need to protect these endangered animals and their natural habitats.
