COLOMBO: Rescuers pulled an elephant calf to safety after it got trapped in a drain in Sri Lanka's southern port city of Hambantota, a region where hundreds of wild elephants roam freely.

Port workers teamed up with wildlife officials on Sunday (May 29) to break open the drain near a main road, reach inside and rescue the animal.

It was not immediately clear how the baby elephant, who was taken away for medical treatment, got stuck in the drain.
