When this mama elephant saw her precious calf was in danger, she didn’t need a knight in shining armor to come to her aid.

CCTV footage from a zoo in Seoul, South Korea, captured the horrifying moment a baby elephant and its mother were playing waterside when a single misstep sent the baby tumbling into the water. After a failed attempt at swimming back to dry land, this worried mother wasn't going to wait around for help. That's when she pulled off an amazing rescue.

With the help of another adult elephant, the pair went charging into the water after the drowning calf.
