This sweet story will restore your faith in humanity.

On February 17th, a passing Metro UK train filled with kind and compassionate railway riders asked the conductor to stop when they spotted a struggling baby elephant caught in a muddy ditch. The sweet calf fell and slipped into the ditch when walking with the herd across the railway in India.

More than a dozen passengers kept the elephant calm and full by feeding him or her (not sure which) vegetation until rescuers could come and set the baby free. Apparently, this is not an uncommon occurrence, and there have been several reported incidences of elephants being trapped in mud and needing human rescue.
