This sweet video shows the moment an adorable baby elephant was rescued after getting stuck in a waterhole.

The tiny little baby found itself trapped in the man-made waterhole after quenching its thirst, and it was too small to get out on its own.

Its desperate mother tried in vain to help, but she was unable to free her baby.

Luckily, help was on hand from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, who came to the rescue in a chopper to pull the baby to safety.

The footage was shot by Christian Heimann, from Switzerland, during a trip to Sentrim Lodge in Tsavo East, near Voi, Kenya, with his wife Celine and friend Margit Ruggieri.
