Elephant Herd Saves Baby Elephant From Drowning

This is the adorable moment where a heard of elephants step in to help a young elephant from a river.

The herd had stopped to drink, but when the little elephant went to drink the dirt gave out beneath his feet and he fell into the water.

Unable to get out the water the tiny elephant is quickly surrounded by the herd, who first try to pull out the elephant and then one climbs in to push the baby out.

The footage was captured by Jaques Joubert, 55, and Michelle Broadhurst, 49, in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
