When the going gets rough, friends and family always have your back -- take it from this baby elephant.

A video uploaded to YouTube captures an elephant calf collapsing on the road in South Africa's Kruger National Park, according to the clip's description. But fear not, because the little one's herd comes to help it back up and escort it back to safety.

Watch at the 0:21 mark as a larger elephant comes to tend to the calf. Other elephants join and nudge the little guy on the ground. Finally, at the 1:43 mark, the baby begins to stand up with the help of another larger elephant.

The herd must've taken Lilo's words to heart -- "'Ohana' means 'family' and 'family' means nobody gets left behind."
