Elephant rescued from watery pit in northeastern India
An elephant was rescued from a watery pit in northeastern India’s Assam.
The incident reportedly happened in Rangjuli range of Goalpara district on December 13.
Visuals showed an excavator being used to carve out a path in the pit for the elephant to come out. The pachyderm stood at a distance while the excavator dug up the ground at one side of the pit. Soon, the elephant walked over to the area of the pit where a path was paved and then climbed out of the pit and into safety.
It then slowly wandered off into a bushy area.
The rescue operation was headed by Deputy RFO Sarat Das and took about an hour.
