A baby elephant survived an attack by 14 lions after wandering away from his mother at the Norman Carr Safaris Chinzombo Camp in Zambia.

A video of the attack show lionesses hanging from the 1-year-old elephant’s back as he walks into the water and then charges after the lions. In the video, onlookers can be heard questioning where the other elephants are and cheering for the baby elephant to go in the water and fight back.

Story continues below video.



“In the 30-plus years I have been a safari guide in Zambia at the Luangwe Park, never have I seen anything like this,” a safari guide who witnessed the attack said, according to the New York Post. “We were all so worried the baby elephant would be killed right before us.”

Pictures of the attack are posted on the Norman Carr Safaris website. The young bull elephant earned the name Hercules.

The photos and video were taken by guests, including two journalists and an artist, of Norman Carr Safaris on a game drive.

Twitter users were amazed and used it as a teachable moment.
