“It’s my instinct to save lives, but I was worried the whole time because I can hear the mother and other elephants calling for the baby,” Mana said.
“I assumed where an elephant heart would be located based on human theory and a video clip I saw online.
“When the baby elephant started to move, I almost cried,” he added.
