Elephants Help Struggling Calf Out of a Muddy Waterhole

A herd of elephants rushed to the aid of calf after it got trapped in a watering hole.

The heart-warming scenes were captured at the famous Kruger National Park in South Africa on November 19 2015 The area is famous for its large elephant herds. 

The baby elephant, thought to be only eight or 10 weeks old, got stuck in the watering hole and had a stressful few minutes before he was freed.
His own mother, also young and probably a first time parent, was unable to help him.

Eventually, an older elephant rushed over to help and freed the youngster.
