This incredible video shows the bond between humans and animals as an elephant rushes into the water to help a man.

Kham Lha, an elephant at Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, thought Darrick was in trouble so she rushed into the river to save him.

Darrick Thompson is the Co founder of Save Elephant Foundation, and wasn’t really in any difficulty but he’s lucky to have a friend watching out for him all the same.

Elephant Nature Park is an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Northern Thailand.

The park provides a natural environment for rescued elephants and Darrick is one of their many volunteers.

A representative of the park said: “This can show us that, when we treat an animal with love, they always pay love back to us”.
