The orphans woke up in a very happy mood, running around the compound downing small bushes. Soon there was a call from Lewa Downs that an elephant calf had been found on a road in a state of collapse. By the time the Rescue Team arrived at the Lewa airstrip, the calf was already on a drip and his chances of survival looked grim since he was already half dead.. He passed away soon after arrival back in the Nursery.
