Baby elephant was saved - level 1

A baby elephant fell into a hole. The elephant had a problem. It could not get out. Other elephants tried to help. But they weren’t able to help. So people came to help. This happened in northeast India.

People used ropes. They pulled the elephant out. Good people took the animal to a doctor. Then they gave the elephant food. The elephant is OK now.

Interesting words: able (good at something), rope (long line from textile).
