An elephant that fell into a well in Andhra Pradesh’s Chittoor on Monday night was rescued Tuesday by officials of the forest department and fire brigade. A video shared by news agency ANI shows a JCB machine razing a portion of the well's wall and making a slope for the elephant to climb out. Fortunately for all concerned, the well did not appear very deep.

As officials worked to rescue the trapped animal, the elephant could be seen anxiously moving around inside the well and trying to climb up the wall.

As soon as a portion of the wall is broken to make way for, the elephant - which appeared to be a young animal - clambers out of the well. Relieved to have just come out of danger, the elephant moves towards the forest as locals with their mobile phone cameras run behind.
