July 21, 1986|From Reuters

GIVSKUD, Denmark — A bull elephant fell on his side in a lake at a Danish nature park today after fleeing seven amorous she-elephants and had to be righted by a crane.

Frederik, 16 years old and weighing three tons, was chased into the shallow lake by the females and could not get back up on his legs, park director Leif Nielsen said.

The cow elephants did their best to push him upright with their trunks, but Nielsen finally had to bring in rescue services to lift him with a crane.
