True, for the big and heavy elephants crossing rivers isn’t too big of a problem, however when you’re as small as this elephant calf it can quickly turn into a tragedy.
This family was on their way across this fast flowing river and everything was going smoothly when the baby of the pack lost traction and got carried away by the current. What followed is one of the most amazing rescues I’ve seen. First, the mum was quick to react and catch it before the baby went too far, but not even she could push it against the current. So watch who stepped in.
