The poor creature was trying to have a mud bath to cool off in the summer heat in southern India on Saturday. 

However, the infant got trapped in the sticky muck in the Bandipur tiger reserve in Karnataka. 

The footage shows the unlucky elephant writhing around on its side in a large muddy puddle, trying to get free. 

But it appears to be getting exhausted, so the digger was brought to the rescue before any predators can attack the vulnerable animal.   

Onlookers alerted forestry officials who look after the area, and the heartwarming video shows the elephant being helped 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 after its ordeal on  May 15.
