6 Baby Elephants Rescued From Muddy Pond

Playing 6 Baby Elephants Stuck in Mud Pit Helped by Parks Officials in Thailand

Six baby elephants that found themselves trapped in a muddy pond with no way out were rescued by dedicated officials.

Video shows the elephants slipping and sliding in the muddy pond in Thap Lan National Park in Thailand.

Using axes, officials from the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation tirelessly chopped away at the pond's bank to create a ramp for the elephants to navigate themselves to freedom.

Eventually, one by one, the babies pulled themselves out as onlookers cheered.

The rescue unfolded about 100 miles from Bangkok.
