This freak accident occurred in Thailand in 2009 when a baby elephant fell through the narrow manhole of a drainage ditch. Onlookers watched on helplessly as the elephant did its best to free itself, thankfully help finally arrived in the form of a team of rescuers who used a bulldozer to dig out the sides of the manhole and lift the baby elephant to safety.
