Wild elephants walking in Khao Yai National Park

Two elephants rescued after falling into a ditch in Nakhon Nayok

A pair of elephants, a baby and its mother were rescued Wednesday in Thailand’s Khao Yai National Park after falling down a two-meter deep ditch.

According to the team that assisted in the rescue operation, the one-year-old baby fell into a drainage pipe belonging to a hotel complex in Nakhon Nayok, located in the area of the Khao Yai National Park.

The rescue took three hours and involved teams from a nearby resort, local villagers and national park officials. A veterinarian had to provide medical aid and “stimulate the heart” of the elephant, which had stopped breathing due to the impact.

The elephant regained consciousness after she was stimulated by a veterinarian and her baby.

As soon as she recovered, park authorities released the two animals back into the rainforest where they live.
