A drowning baby elephant has been saved by its elder family members at South Korea’s Seoul Grand Park. In a video published by the zoo on June 18, a young elephant, named Hope, tested the water at a pool with its trunk but somehow lost its balance. A pair of adult elephants, described as the calf’s mom and aunt, came to its rescue, first trying to reach it with their trunks, then got into the water to hold the distressed calf up. They eventually herded the young calf back to the land. A third adult elephant can be seen pacing back and forth in a separate closure, appearing alarmed by the situation.
