Baby elephant gets a helping hand (Video)


This is the incredible moment a pair of elephants ran to help a tiny calf after she fell over and became wedged in a hole.

Six-week-old baby elephant Omysha was trying to climb out of the pit at Zurich Zoo, in Switzerland, when it all became too much for her tiny little legs and she tumbled backwards.

The calf landed on her bum upright and was unable to flick herself back onto four legs.

What happened next was pretty amazing. She had fallen over while trying to get up on the landing.

Her parents saw her in trouble and rushed over. They managed to get Omysha upright and then led her to the correct way out of the pit.
