A nearly two-minute video that went viral on Twitter shows the shocking moment when workers rescue an elephant in danger. The pachyderm, which was trapped in a ditch, was rescued with the help of a machine.
The elephant accidentally fell into a ditch and struggled getting out of there because it was too muddy. The animal’s paw slipped as he tried to escape. Then the forest workers used a JCB backhoe machine to push the elephant gently and was finally able to get out.
After the rescue, the workers applauded and celebrated, but they also threw a firecracker near the machine and the elephant.

In general, social network users congratulated them for the kind gesture towards the elephant.
