The bond between humans and wild animals may seem conflicting but many-a-time we have come across heart-warming images and videos that suggest otherwise.

A recent video that has gone viral shows a cute elephant cub getting away from its herd to help a man, even though he doesn’t require much rescuing.

The adorable baby elephant – identified as Kham Lha – is seen grazing on the banks among the river along with other elephants when she catches glimpse of her favourite human Darrick in the river. Thinking that he might be drowning the little one rushing into the water to save him, however, the video clearly shows that Darrick was swimming fine. But what happens next when Kham Lha comes closer and hold Darrick by her trunk will melt your heart.

The video shows Darrick thanking her and the duo hugging each other in joy. The special bond is absolutely adorable and asserts that even wild beast reacts to love in the cutest way.
