When the baby elephant got trapped, its mother tried to rescue it but failed. That is when the rescuers stepped in to help the gentle giants.

IAS officer Supriya Sahu took to X to share a beautiful story of rescue and reunion. In her post, she shared how forest officials stepped in to rescue a baby elephant that slipped and fell into a canal in Tamil Nadu. She also shared three videos, and one of them shows the baby's mother ‘thanking’ the rescuers after reuniting with it.

“Our hearts are melting with joy to see the elephant mother raising her trunk to thank our foresters after they rescued and united a very young baby elephant with the mother. The baby had slipped and fallen into a canal in Pollachi in Coimbatore District in Tamil Nadu. The mother tried hard to rescue the baby but the young one was unable to come out due to strong water flow. Kudos to the team for their exceptional efforts which led to the successful reunion even though the operation was fraught with risks,” the IAS officer wrote. She wrapped up her post by thanking those involved in the rescue operation.
