This is a suspenseful video to watch! A heard of elephants was crossing the Ewaso Nyiro river when the smallest member almost got washed away.  As the uploader says:

With the river deep, mountain high banks are never easy for adults, let alone a six month old calf, so being washed away in the current was a very real possibility. Thankfully mum and her emergency swat team enacted a remarkable rescue. They say elephants can remember, well this little calf will remember this advanced swimming lesson for the rest of its life, as will Sandy.
