Elephant rescued from well

An elephant trapped in Indian well was rescued in 12-hour crane operation.

The animal fell into well covered with bushes in village in Tamil Nadu’s Dharmapuri district of India.

Officials said they used a crane to pull an elephant from a well after working for more than 12 hours to rescue the animal.

The well that was covered with bushes did not have a fence or wall around it.

Two other elephants have fallen into such wells in the past year in the area.

Luckily, the elephant was found to be healthy and active when it came out of the well.
