Quite the trunk on that vehicle! Elephant helps push truck stuck in the mud

A truck driver got stranded by a roadside in central Bangladesh near Dhaka, and was unable to get out until a passing tame elephant walked by and the driver had an idea.

Video shows how the elephant, together with many other people helped to push the truck free of the pothole at the roadside on the morning of April 3.

The truck had been stranded by the roadside since the night before, and the driver had repeatedly tried to shift it in the night, and was only able to free it with the powerful pachyderm's help, and a generous payment to its owner.
