Watch the water buffalo rescue

You'd expect to find water at the bottom of a well - but not a water buffalo! But that's what villagers in Yulin, South China found.

Firefighters arrived at the scene to find the water buffalo's head sticking out of the water's surface.

They tried to fill the well with water so the buffalo would rise to the top - but the animal got stuck.

In the end two wooden logs were used to lift the animal out by its back legs.

According to the water buffalo's owner, the animal had accidentally slipped into the well while grazing outside the house.
