The heartwarming moment a baby elephant wades through water to save his human best friend from ‘ᴅʀᴏᴡɴɪɴɢ’ has been caught on camera and loved by millions (2.2 million to be precise) online.
It’s incredible to watch the elephant embrace Darrick when she finally reaches him.
An old viral video showing a baby elephant rushing to save a man from ‘ᴅʀᴏᴡɴɪɴɢ,’ is regaining popularity on social media. The adorable footage, initially shared on twitter, a couple of days ago shows a herd of elephants standing at a riverbank, while a human can been seen swimming in the river. Suddenly, the man acts as he’s about to drown. The next moment wins the internet over. A baby elephant runs in a hurry to save the drowning man.
It happened at Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, a sanctuary and a rescue center for elephants. Here, animal lovers as Darrick, the man in the video, dedicated their lives to help and protect these incredible creatures. Kham Lha, an ᴏʀᴘʜᴀɴᴇᴅ baby elephant has a great fond of Darrick, the man who takes care of her, every single day.
Shared on October 12, the video shows the wonderful bond between Kham Lha, the elephant, and his trainer, Darrick.
Footage captured at the Elephant Nature Park in Northern Thailand shows the trainer swimming in water. Kham Lha, in the meantime, misunderstands and thinks Darrick needs help. So the elephant rushes to rescue her human, almost as if it were a reflex action. Of course, the man has never been in danger. The baby elephant then very sweetly comes and protects the man from the current of the water and the man can be heard saying thankyou to the elephant.
The adorable footage is meant to raise awareness for people to stop hunting elephants down. Darrick and Save Elephant Foundation are hardly trying to help at the conservation of this species!
