A baby elephant has been rescued after falling down a well in Kenya.

Members of the Amboseli Trust, an elephant welfare and conservation group, saved the 8-month old animal.

In the risky rescue, the team had to tie a the rope to their jeep so they could pull the elephant all the way out of the hole.

Before they could get anywhere near the baby they had to move the elephant's mum, who was stomping around the well.

The rescue was a success and the calf ran off to be reunited with her mum.
