The moment the 11-month-old calf plunged head first into a watering hole at the Grand Park Zoo in Seoul, its mother and another elephant came running to help.
The two raced into the water and carefully guided the baby out.
As the rescue unfolded, a third elephant in a different enclosure was seen pacing anxiously, looking as if it was trying to find a way to join the rescue effort.
None of the elephants were injured, ABC News reported. It’s not clear when the incident took place.
