When an elephant falls into a canal in Sri Lanka, people from all over rally together to save the poor thing. After struggling to stay above water for nine hours, the elephant finally found the strength to climb up the side. If the kind villagers and wildlife officials did not take action, this elephant would not have lived to see another day. We applaud the people of Sri Lanka!
