According to park officials, a year-old calf fell down a drain hole while the mother was guarding it, never leaving the side. The rescue team used tranquilizer injections to restrain the distraught mother elephant, causing half of her to fall into the hole. However, it allowed the baby elephant to suckle from its mother.
Rescuers then used a crane to lift the mother, but she passed out from the stress. Video of the heartbreaking scene showed staff performing CRP to save the elephant.
The calf later climbed out of the hole and suckled on the mother until she regained consciousness and both were able to return to the wild.
