Stranded baby elephant rescued by Indian workers after getting stuck in a lake

Using boats and a lot of patience, rescuers managed to get a baby elephant out of a lake in India.

The elephant calf was stranded in the Deepor Beel lake in India’s northeastern Kamrup district after getting separated from its mother.

Forest officials and local volunteers worked with the National Disaster Response Force to guide the elephant out of reeds and vegetation.

As everyone watched, the elephant was persuaded to step into a waiting wooden boat.

The plan is to now reunite the calf with its mother.
