A heartbreaking video captures the moment when a baby moose struggles to get out of a stream and is swept down while his mother watches.

The small calf was in the potentially deadly situation after crossing the river in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, USA, with his mother.

With a strong current, the river grabs the weak calf while struggling to swim against it.

The incident was recorded on camera in June by a couple walking in the park: & My wife and I were in Rocky Mountain National Park, we walked down a path when we encountered a cow moose and her calf.

& # 39; The calf was trapped in the stream where the mother came to help the calf, but the calf had difficulty getting out.

The moose population in the state of Colorado is believed to be around 2500 and is usually found on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Because elks are very large (sometimes more than 6 ft 10 in long), it is not overly difficult to see them while grazing near water and in low-lying areas.

For a moment it seems as if the calf is almost completely submerged
