India (State of Jharkhand, India)
May 3, 2021
A team in northeastern India worked for around six hours today (May 3) to
free a baby elephant that fell into a well.
The calf became separated from the herd and fell into the water source at
night in the Giridig area of Jharkhand state.
A team of rescuers made up of members of the forest department and locals
used three diggers to create a ramp leading from the bottom of the 50-foot
well to the surface.
When the ramp was complete, the baby elephant walked to safety and and
immediately ran off into the jungle, apparently unharmed.
