In Thailand, on the island of Phuket, there is a city that bears the same name and serves as the capital of the Phuket province.
In 2004, there was a baby elephant there who still lived there twelve years later. That year, a very strong tsunami occurred in Thailand, causing a lot of suffering for many people.
At that time, an 8-year-old girl named Amber was vacationing in Phuket with her family.
Every morning, to go to the beach, the little girl would ride on a baby elephant that its owner would bring to the hotel.
Amber loved this little elephant, and for her, those were the most enjoyable moments.
Ning-Nong had also grown fond of the little girl, and every time, he seemed to be content. But one day, the little animal became nervous and very anxious.
Suddenly, people resting by the sea saw the water recede from its shores.
Some ran to collect seashells. However, the water quickly began to rise.
Ning-Nong, who was strolling with Amber, suddenly fled from the beach, carrying the girl on his back.
He didn’t even pay attention to his owner’s cries.
The baby elephant ran towards the hotel through the rising waters. Over the years, Amber never forgot her savior.
As she grew up, she shared this story on the internet and decided to find her adorable Ning Nong.
And it wasn’t difficult to find him in Phuket since elephants are registered there. Fortunately, Ning-Nong had managed to escape the tsunami.
After 12 years, Amber and Ning Nong were reunited. He had already grown into an adult and sociable elephant.
Several people who had learned Amber’s story also wanted to meet the wise and courageous elephant.
