Indian Village Works for Hours to Free Trapped Elephant
People in Sundergarh, India, knew they had to help when they found the elephant struggling to get out of deep water on Thursday, Reuters reported. Forest, police and fire officials gave the villagers the tools they needed to help the elephant. In a video of the rescue, people use ropes under the elephant's legs to help flip her over, pulling with all of their might. She lets out a trumpeting sound before running off into the forest to rejoin her herd. The whole effort took more than two hours.
