Elephant gets rescued from well using crane

This is the heartwarming moment an elephant was saved from the bottom of a 20ft well by rescuers using a crane. Video footage has captured how a huge rescue operation was launched to save an elephant stranded at the bottom of a well in an Indian jungle. The clip shows rescuers use a crane to hoist the huge animal out of the well and onto the back of a truck ready for release back into the wild. The massive rescue effort took place close to the Panagar army camp in Jalpaiguri, Western Bengal, after the elephant is believed to have strayed from the Bishnupur jungle. Army officials realised the elephant was trapped in the well after hearing a noise coming from deep inside.
