EMBED </>More Videos

The animal was upside down in the narrow ditch and couldn't get out.

A group scouting Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park for poachers came across a young elephant trapped upside down in a man-made ditch.

They held his trunk above water so he wouldn't drown, and then tried to get him out.

In the end, they had to use a tractor.

He was later released back into the wild.
