This is the incredible moment when a baby elephant is rescued after falling into a 30-foot well in India.
A shot was taken in Jharkhand, eastern India, yesterday showed rescuers used an excavator to dig a corridor to help the scared calf escape after it fell into a well on Sunday night.
When the baby climbed out of the well and reached the top of the path, he ran away from rescuers.
Video footage of a confused elephant almost wholly submerged in dark brown water patiently waiting to be rescued.
Excavators managed to break the wall of a well and into the stream where the baby elephant was waiting.
As the last digger withdrew, the frightened calf could be seen pulling himself out of the water and onto a muddy and hastily constructed path.
Then the baby paused for a moment, throwing the ground with her trunk into the air for an apparent celebration before continuing to climb.
The calf’s legs appear weak in the video, and it struggles to pull itself up on the slippery road.
However, when it reached the top, the baby took off and ran away from the rescuers.
The calf is part of a herd of 22 elephants living in the Sariya area of Giridih district.
Forestry Department officials are currently swinging the calves toward the herd to reunite with the pack.
