Incredible Video Shows The Moment An Elephant Rushes To Rescue ‘Drowning’ Keeper After Pair Formed An ‘Inseparable Bond’

KHAM LA AND HER CARER DARRICK THOMSON

This incredible video shows the moment an Elephant rushed to save her keeper who she thought was drowning.

This baby Elephant thought the man who looked after her was drowning and rushes to save him ❤️ . The Save Elephant Foundation in Chiang Mai, Thailand, captured little Kham La racing to the ‘aid’ of Darrick Thomson, the co-founder of the foundation and one of her favorite people ever.

Darrick was calling out to her on the shore, and she interpreted his calls as distress cries (he was totally fine, though). Kham La charged through the water, sheltering him with her body and offering her trunk for him to hold on to.

The video shows him swimming, and splashing about in the water.

Faithful Kham La seems to think he might be in trouble and races into the water to rescue him.
