These days, the web has once again been surrounded by an older video in which we can follow a wonderful scene with a friendship we witness between an elephant and its caretaker.

The video is already a real success online – to date, it has garnered more than 21 million views on YouTube alone.

The video shows the remarkable bond between Darrick and elephant Kham Lha, who lives in an elephant nature park. This one is located in the north of Thailand, and a man named Darrick takes care of many elephants there.

When the elephant Kham Lha noticed that Darrick was swimming in the river, he first thought that he was in great danger. Thinking that the caretaker was drowning, the animal quickly rushed into the water to come to his aid and save him from the dangerous river.

Watch a wonderful video that is real proof of how loving and wonderful creatures elephants are. Will the elephant Kham Lha warm your heart with his action?
