Her family stood by in terror as she struggled in the water.
A panicked herd of enormous elephants stood by helplessly as one of their littlest was drowning. The banks were too deep and the mud too slippery for them to get her out on their own.
Luckily, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust's Voi Elephant Keepers received a call about the distressed elephant and rushed to the scene to help. But the elephants of the herd were upset about the drowning baby, and seemed ready to charge at any approaching threat. Very carefully, the Voi Elephant Keepers got closer to the ditch where the baby flailed.
