Elephants rescue 18-wheeler stranded on US road
英语新闻:马戏团大象高速路上救险

美国一辆运送马戏团大象的卡车在路易斯安那州高速公路旁停留时,由于轱辘陷入泥中致使车身发生倾斜。情急之下,驾驶员放出了车内的两头大象,利用大象5吨重的身躯暂时稳住卡车。

When an 18-wheeler truck became stranded by the side of a Louisiana road, two elephants inside came to the rescue.

Sheriff's deputies in Natchitoches Parish on Tuesday morning received a call about a stuck truck. Arriving on the scene, they saw two elephants preventing the vehicle from overturning.

The truck's driver, also an elephant trainer, walked the elephants out of the cargo compartment and directed them to help prop up the vehicle, sheriff's Captain Tony Moran said.

"It's creative," said Moran, who said the responding deputies were "just astonished to see it." Leaning side-by-side, the elephants pushed with their weight against the truck.

The truck was carrying three elephants from Florida. The truck had pulled over on an interstate shoulder near Powhatan, Louisiana, about an hour south of Shreveport.

After summoning aid to right the truck, the driver walked the elephants back onto the truck, using spoken commands, Moran said. (Reuters )
