A dramatic rescue happened on the flats of the Kapani Lagoon in Zambia.
A baby elephant and its mother got stuck in a mud lagoon. The family herd desperately to help them from the mud grave.
A team of conservation workers come into a rescue. They plan to rescue the calf first. Workers managed to slip a rope under the baby before the hard work of pulling her free begins.
Although the baby appears to be almost free of the mud pool, she tries to go back to her mother.
The team tries to deter the calf from returning to its mother.
The workers made a final attempt to pull the baby elephant further from her mother who continues to thrash around in the mud.
Finally the workers succeed pulling clear the calf from the mud.
A cousin from her herd calls to her and she makes a dash for freedom.
The workers' focus then turns to the mother elephant who is becoming tired after struggling for so long.
Manpower would not be enough to pull the mother elephant so they use a tractor.
She eventually senses freedom, so she starts to scramble through the mud an inch by inch.
After a long struggle, the mother elephant finally succeed to get out from the mud and dash towards to her family.
