Assam: As floods in Assam intensified, Kaziranga National Park went nearly underwater, with reports stating that about 90 percent of the park was submerged. In past few days, images and videos of animals trapped in floods and trying to escape have made it to the internet.

A video posted by IFS Parveen Kaswan shared a video of a baby rhino being rescued by a team of wildlife rescuers.

The 45-second long video showed the rescuers struggling to lift the calf out of the water. "Some will be lucky. A team of wildlife rescuers get hold of a #Rhino calf in Kaziranga. In the time of disasters", Kaswan wrote in the tweet.

The video has garnered gratitude and respect for the rescuers who appeared to be Kaziranga staff.

Kaziranga is home to the world's largest population of Indian one-horned rhinoceroses. Other animals such as tigers, elephants, sloth bears, monkeys and musk deer are also found in the forest.
