Baby Elephant Rescued from Well by Villagers in India

Villagers and forest officials in India's southern Kerala state came to the rescue of an elephant calf trapped inside an unused well.

The two-year-old calf fell into the well while roaming with its mother and the rest of the herd in a forest.

Rescuers used an earth mover to dig a path to the well and rope to help the calf climb its way out.
