A three-year-old video that has resurfaced on the Internet shows a baby elephant ‘saving’ a man he thought was drowning.
The touching video, which was posted to Twitter again three days ago, has garnered a whopping 6.7 million views already.
In the heartwarming video, the elephant rushes to save his human best friend, wading into the water and offering him his trunk for support.
Although the incident actually took place at an elephant sanctuary in 2016, Twitter can’t stop ‘aww-ing’ over the adorable old video.
Along with 6.7 million views, the video has also amassed a number of comments.
The incident actually took place in 2016 at the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand. The video shows Kham Lha, one of the youngest residents of the elephant sanctuary, rushing to save his friend, Darrick Thomson.
According to The Dodo, Kham Lha and Darrick, a volunteer at the park, share a remarkably close bond. Apparently, Darrick was just calling out to Kham Lha from the water and was never in any danger.
