Staff Reporter

KOCHI: An elephant that fell into a swamp at Thevara on Friday midnight was rescued on Saturday night, following concerted efforts by rescue teams led by the Fire and Rescue Service.

Since mechanised cranes could not be taken near the elephant, personnel of the service and a team of mahouts sprayed water from hoses and pulled Vishnu Narayanan out of the swamp by 10.30 p.m.. A team of Fire and Rescue personnel led by R. Prasad, assistant divisional fire officer, conducted the rescue efforts .
