After a baby elephant fell into a pool at a zoo in South Korea, two adult elephants came to save the day.

Video from the incident shows the calf, Hope, drinking from the pool next to her mom before falling over the edge and into the water at the Seoul Grand Park Zoo.

Hope's aunt saw what was happening from the other side of the pool, and was seen lumbering over to help.

The two adults rushed into the pool and worked together to lead Hope in the right direction, guiding the calf to a shallow end of the pool where it could climb out.

Zoo officials said no elephants were injured.
