Rampaging Elephant Smashes House, Then Saves Crying Baby Trapped In The Rubble

"Dipak Mahato and his wife, Lalita, were eating dinner when they heard cracking and crashing sounds coming from the bedroom.
"We ran over and were shocked to see the wall in pieces and a tusker standing over our baby," Dipak told The Times of India."She was crying and there were huge chunks of the wall lying all around and on the cot."
The elephant, which forest officials say has killed three people in the last year, pulled the rubble from the 10-month-old and then headed back into the forest.
"I can't believe that the tusker saved my daughter after breaking down the door and smashing a wall." Lalita said. "We watched amazed as it gently removed the debris that had fallen on her. It's a miracle."
The couple took their daughter to the hospital where she was treated for external injuries but otherwise found to be in good health."
