Friends are important – even for animals. An elephant calf has given the world a lesson on true friendship by saving his trainer from ‘drowning’. A clip of the heart-warming moment was shared online on October 12.
The footage shows Kham Lha, the baby elephant, rushing to the aid of his trainer Darrick who was swimming in the water. Kham Lha misunderstands Darrick to be in need of help and immediately comes to his rescue.
The incident reportedly took place at the Elephant Nature Park in Northern Thailand. A description posted along with the video reads: "This can show us that when we treat animals with love, they always pay back with love".
