This is the heartwarming moment an entire village united to haul a trapped baby elephant from a 20ft well.

The three-month-old calf toppled into the hole when its 20-strong herd trampled through a community.

A video shows forest officers and locals lowering a net into the hole, climbing in, and villagers cheering as the animal is lifted to safety.

The excitable calf is then held up by the rescuers as it finds its feet - and marched towards the herd waiting at the edge of the jungle.
