A baby elephant, hit by a motorbike, has been resuscitated by an off-duty rescue worker in Thailand.
The baby elephant was seen crossing the road, accompanied by a group of pachyderms, when it was hit by a motorbike.
It was then the rescuer, Mana Srivate, rushed over to help the hurt animal.
In the video circulating the internet, Srivate is seen giving chest compressions to the baby elephant.
In the clip, Srivate's group was also seen helping the rider of the motorbike who did not sustain any severe injuries.
Miraculously, his quick thinking helped bring the baby elephant back to consciousness and it was able to stand up within the span of a few minutes.
Srivate talks about how he had performed such compression in his career but never before on an elephant.
He tells the Reuters news agency the following over a phone call, "It's my instinct to save lives, but I was worried the whole time because I can hear the mother and other elephants calling for the baby."
He further explained his course of action by stating, "I assumed where an elephant heart would be located based on human theory and a video clip I saw online. When the baby elephant starting to move, I almost cried."
Later, the baby elephant was taken from the site of the accident for medical attention but was later returned to the same location in the attempt to locate its mother.
Upon hearing the baby elephant's calls, the herd and its missing member were finally reunited.
