We all know the power of maternal instinct, but we haven't seen it like this before.
When a baby elephant took a tumble into a pool at the Grand Park Zoo in Seoul, South Korea, footage captured 2 adult elephants springing into action.
The captured footage shows the curious 1-year-old baby getting close to the water's edge and then accidentally tumbling in.
Luckily the baby was not actually drowning according to Joyce Poole, a National Geographic explorer and co-founder of Elephant Voices.
“When elephants swim, they put their trunk out of the water and continue to breathe,” she said.
In the video, you can see the baby doing this snorkeling behavior, which means it was in no immediate danger.
So why all the panic?
