SPOKANE, Wash. - What is cuter than an elephant? How about a baby elephant? Sure. 

Okay, what is cuter than a baby elephant? How about a baby elephant falling on its bum and unable to turn itself upright like a turtle on its shell? Okay. I suppose. 

What's cuter than a baby elephant falling on its bum and unable to turn itself upright like a turtle on its shell? How about the adult elephants immediately coming to the rescue of the baby elephant who fell on its bum and was unable to turn itself upright like a turtle on its shell. Winner. 

The video of that event was posted to the internet in October and has started to pick up some steam. The incident was caught on camera at a zoo in Switzerland. The baby elephant was trying so hard to scale up a rock to be with the rest of its herd when he fell backwards and was unable to get up. However, he wasn't that way for long, because some adult elephants immediately ran over, flipped the baby back on his feet and then guided him safely to higher ground. 

It's about as cute as it gets. Check it out courtesy of Viral News on YouTube.
