This is at the top of every video this week … a huge elephant rose from a well and pulled it to a safe place … and it only took 12 hours !!!
It was an incredible feat. The majestic beast fell into a deep well in India and rescuers jumped into action. The dilemma – how to pull all this tonnage on solid ground.
Rescue efforts began in broad daylight on Thursday, but continued into the darkness as the elephant was secured with ropes and then a crane was sent to lift the creature.
The animal was calm and slow … lifted from the base of the well and climbed up.
When all was said and done, the elephant emerged from the darkness … with greetings from rescuers and onlookers. He was free of the ropes and stood with obvious relief. The elephant is fine!
Apparently the wells are an attractive nuisance to elephants … Recently, 2 others have fallen into Indian wells … not to be confused with Indian wells outside of Palm Springs.
So who said elephants can’t fly!?!
