A short video out of Chaing Mai, Thailand showing an adorable young elephant “rescuing” a man in a river has gone viral after it was posted to YouTube.

Darrick Thompson, co-founder of the Save Elephant Foundation, was going for a dip in a river, and Kham Lha, one of the foundation’s rescued baby elephants, was standing on the shore.

She mistook him calling out to her from the water as a cry for help and charged into the water to save him by offering her trunk.
