This photograph released by the Sri Lankan Navy shows the rescue of an elephant that was spotted struggling to stay afloat in deep sea waters, some eight kilometres off the island's northeast coast. Divers aided by wildlife officials approached the distressed animal and tied ropes to it before towing it gently to shallow waters near the coast, where it was released.
