Elephants help calf cross the river in Ol Pejeta

A deep river is never easy for elephant adults, let alone a six month old calf, to cross and being washed away in the current is a very real possibility. This incredible footage by Kicheche Laikipia guest, Sandy Gelderman and husband Daniel E. Slaven, filmed while being led by guide,  Onesmus Lesiata, in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, shows  a mother elephant, and her emergency swat team, enacting a remarkable rescue for a tiny elephant calf who got swept away while crossing the rain-swollen Ewaso Nyiro River. - See more at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9pekF3bV6w or  http://africageographic.com/blog/elephants-help-calf-cross-river/
