Gripping video footage: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/07/asian-elepant-rescue-ocean-sri-lanka-navy-spd/

"After being swept eight nautical miles (just under 10 miles) out to sea, dramatic video footage shows an elephant rescued by the Sri Lankan navy during a laborious 12-hour process.

"Officials first noticed the elephant during a routine patrol off the island's northeast coast. The animal was struggling to stay afloat. Video shows the elephant nearly submerged in water and using its trunk as a makeshift snorkel to breathe."
