A video of the incident has gone viral on the Internet and left netizens surprised.

The 30-second-long video shows the baby elephant using its trunk to push the handle of the hand pump. It then immediately drinks the water with the help of its trunk. The elephant does so multiple times till its thirst is quenched.
