Amazing moment After rescuing the duo from a drain in Thailand, veterinarians hop up and down on the mother elephant to provide CPR in front of the scared calf.
Before a lengthy three-hour CPR procedure, veterinarians employed a crane to rescue a mother elephant who had become stuck in a golf drain.
The 10-year-old bull aggressively knocked her out by striking her head against the side of the concrete building.
“This encounter touched our hearts and will be one of the most unforgettable rescues we’ve done,” said Dr. Chananya.
This moving scene shows how a mother elephant was saved by veterinarians performing CPR on her while her young daughter watched.
In Nakhon Nayok, central Thailand, yesterday afternoon, the 10-year-old bull and her one-month-old calf had fallen into a concrete drain while it was pouring rain.
The pair fell into the 7-foot-deep hole because the muddy, damp grass from the storm was slippery.
Veterinarians used a cherry picker to remove the enormous mammals from the drain when it became nearly impossible to extract the duo due to torrential monsoon rain.
However, the mother’s life was immediately in danger after she smacked her head and passed unconscious.
The one-year-old calf watches in worry as a team of veterinarians jumps up and down on her mother, who is ten, yesterday.
As soon as the mother elephant was pulled out of the hole, a team of veterinarians jumped on her to help her regain consciousness.
As park officials and a group of veterinarians hauled the mother elephant out of the deep golf drain, she appeared worse for wear.
After falling in the night before, the baby elephant was able to climb out of the ditch on her own with some assistance.
Incredible video documents the massive three-hour operation to rescue the mother elephant before saving the elephants.
‘It was impossible to get close the infant while the mother was nearby so we gave her three doses of tranquilizers but she moved towards her baby before passing out and hitting her head,’ said lead national park veterinarian Dr. Chananya Kanchanasarak.
The mother “regained consciousness after being stimulated by both myself and the baby,” the speaker continued.
In order to rescue the infant without forcing their way through the 30-elephant herd nearby, park officials phoned the veterinarians out of concern that the mother would scream for assistance.
The group of men and women leaped up and down as the tiny elephant calf worriedly clutched its comatose mother.
The mother elephant was hit in the head and became unconscious, taking three hours to complete the rescue.
The crew is led by Dr. Kanchanasarak as they roll over the elephant so that she can receive their immediate medical care.
The mother calf slipped into a 7-foot crevasse and died after being left alone in the golf drain for the night.
She is seen being set down by the crane after being lifted out of the ditch, and the baby will shortly follow. Then, CPR was required.
The elephants couldn’t get themselves out of the hole, so the cherry picker crane was needed to help them out.
The young calf appeared horrified as the medics hauled out her unconscious mother and performed CPR on her.
In order to stop the protective and potentially aggressive herd from approaching, a team constructed a temporary barrier.
As the national park was battered by torrential monsoon rains, the newborn elephant was unable to escape the 7-foot drain on her own.
The young elephant, who had been trapped the previous night, suckled milk while its mother dozed off in the hole, providing some respite to the veterinarians. The vets continued their work after having the crane remove the animals from the filthy drain.
Three veterans leapt on the mother as soon as she landed safely to resuscitate and awaken her because the impact of hitting her head may have been harmful.
Fortunately, the elephant’s mother woke up. Park guards and veterinarians departed the area to provide room for the jumbos to rejoin and join the vast herd.
As the mother and her child retreated back into the jungle, happy rangers and tearful veterans could be seen observing.
“Despite the difficulties, the mother did not leave her baby’s side,” Dr. Chananya continued.
One of our most memorable rescues will be this one since it touched our hearts.
The veterinarian praised everyone for the “hard work of all parties engaged in the rescue” and declared that “mother and baby are unharmed.”
In Thailand, there are thought to be 4,000 elephants. About half of them are housed in zoos, sanctuaries, and other types of animal camps. The remainder are free to roam in national wildlife refuges.
The encounter, according to Dr. Chananya, touched her team’s hearts and made for one of their most memorable rescues.
Central Thailand was hit by heavy monsoon rains, and the two elephants were caught in the sewer.
When the woman fell in the hole, a crane was called for help, possibly to rescue her daughter who had also fallen in.
The mother elephant tried to escape but failed and plunged headfirst into the golf ditch, its legs scrabbling in the muddy water.
After their efforts, the elephants were permitted to return to the wild together as rescuers and park officers watched.
