The rescue was caught on camera at the Grand Park Zoo.

After the baby slipped into the large pool, the frantic adults moved quickly, reaching the calf and holding its head up until they could maneuver the baby into the shallow water and out of the pool.

A third elephant can be seen in a pen in the background, also distressed over the episode.
