(CNN) - A little elephant recently showed a big display of bravery during a mock rescue in Thailand.

The co-founder of an elephant foundation showed just how loving and brave the big mammals can be.

The video shows a man wading in a river, calling for help and pretending to drown.

The young elephant, named Kham lha, braves the river waters to save her friend, even sheltering him with her trunk.

The video has been viewed 4.6 million times since it was uploaded to YouTube on Oct. 12.
