This elephant family was in panic when the youngest of them began to drown. The sand shoals were too deep and the mud was too slippery for them to reach out for the calf and save it.

Luckily, David Sheldrick Wildlife Refuge got a call and sent a rescue team to the place. But elephants were aggressive and ready to attack anyone who approached them. Very carefully the wardens reached the pit where the baby elephant got stuck.
