Rescuers in eastern India's Odisha saved an elephant from drowning after it fell into a flooded pit.
Visuals from October 24 show an elephant struggling to get up from the pit as rescuers and other volunteers try pulling it out with ropes.
The elephant is loosely tied to a rope while volunteers try to pull the animal out of the well.
Finally, after a few tries, the elephant is pulled out of the well while rescuers move away from the mammal fearing their safety.
According to reports, a group of elephants had been wandering in the area for the past few days.
The elephant is believed to have belonged to the herd and had accidentally fallen into the pit on October 23.
The news about the elephant had spread like wildfire in the area and soon the forest department and fire department were called for help.
The officials, along with some local volunteers then spent about two hours to rescue the mammal.
