Birth of an elephant

This is the first filmed version of an elephant’s birth.

Watch it. It bought a tiny tear to my eyes. You could see the panic in the mother’s eyes when the baby was not breathing. 2 minutes, i would have been an eternity for me. Reminded me of the time when Kannu was born. The midwife wanted to give him a shot of oxygen to kick-start his breathing and the damn oxygen cylinder was empty, it took perhaps 15-20 seconds to switch to the backup cylinder but I was near panicking. I nearly clocked the doctor who asked if everything was all right. Damn hospital not checking oxygen cylinders. As it so happens, the hospital was rated to be the worst in the UK.

Anyway, the first steps of the baby elephant were so cute! :)
