A small Indian village had this baby elephant’s back after it tumbled into a well nearly 30 feet (9m) deep—tearing down bricks to save it.

Arriving with its herd from a nearby forest, the baby made the misstep in Giridih district, in the eastern state of Jharkhand, earlier this month.
After the townspeople of Nimatand chased off the herd, the calf was discovered the following morning at the bottom of the well.
In an elaborate rescue mission, the local forest department was called in and used three backhoes to break down the wall of the brick well, and excavate a sloping trench for the pachyderm to walk on.
