But it appears to be getting exhausted in the process of drying to stand up, as a digger waits nearby to come to the rescue.  

The apex predators of the tiger reserve the creature got trapped in could have been prowling nearby. 

Fortunately, onlookers alerted forestry officials, which look after the area, to rescue the young elephant. 

The heartwarming video shows a yellow JBC digger driver helping the elephant get to its feet.  

The driver nudged the elephant a little with the digger to push it upright from its lying position. 

From there, the elephant was able to stand itself up in the muddy puddle, after becoming unstuck from the muck. 

The digger reversed to allow the elephant to stand by itself and make its way out of the mud. 

Forest officials kept it under watch for a few hours and left it after it seemed healthy.
