Baby Elephant Washed Away In River, Mum Comes To The Rescue

Crossing a fast-flowing river in the Kicheche Laikipia resort in Kenya, this little fella got into a bit of trouble when the current proved too much.

Quick as a flash its mother runs to the rescue and tries to drag him up the bank.

Soon other elephants in the group notice the situation and come to help out.

Yay for happy endings...

The footage was filmed by Sandy Gelderman who was on safari at the time.
