The third elephant was observed running furiously behind the compound, attempting to reach the other two elephants and aid them in rescuing the baby elephant.

Meanwhile, the baby elephant was straining to keep its trunk above water and appeared to be drowning. Soon after, the two adult elephants join forces and enter the pool.
