Elephants are known as highly intelligent and very social beings, so naturally when it comes to their babies, these majestic creatures are overprotective and capable to do anything to keep their calves safe, even those from a different herd.

After a few months old elephant calf got trapped in a concrete hole in Thailand, its mom was desperately trying to help it out. But unfortunately she can’t do it by herself, so she cries for help as her baby’s life is on the line. The elephant’s cry for help gathered a group of people who had no idea what happened. But soon realized the massive elephant tries to communicate them something.
