Import deleted group by mysql backup?

Hi Elggers,

we came into a situation where a user deleted a group, so sadly this one is not available on the site anymore. This particular group had lots of activity and was also important for other users. 

However, we have made mysql backups, if I search in these files, the specific group can be found.

Question: is it possible to import just this group back to the databse. If so, what would be the best approach?

Note: The 'Delete group' option button has already been removed so this mistake cannot happen again.
