In this suspenseful video taken by Kicheche Laikipia safari guest Sandy Gelderman, two elephants help save a baby calf from the powerful current of the river. The herd was attempted to cross the rain-swollen Ewaso Nyiro river which had a very strong current. Even the grown elephants struggled with the river, so it was no surprise a young calf was quickly swept away.
Thankfully, an elephant close by jumped into action to help the calf until big mama arrived to the complete the extraction.
Phew. Thank goodness Dumbo is safe.
