Three elephants were rescued from a 17-foot deep farm well today.


Three elephants were rescued from a 17-foot deep farm well today, hours after they fell into it in a forest fringe village in the district, officials said. On hearing their trumpeting, residents of the village in Kadambur forest area this morning noticed the elephants in the well with about five feet of water and informed forest personnel.

Forest officials along with a rescue team reached the spot. They dug up the land around the well using earth movers and created a slope, enabling the elephants to climb out of the well, the officials said. The rescue operation lasted six hours, they added.
