A viral video of a wild elephant charging at a vehicle as tourists confidently says nothing will happen gives an important message on respecting the nature.

In the video, a group of tourists can be seen sitting in a jeep, recording a small herd video of elephants.

As one of the elephants walks towards them, the driver slowly backs away, but the woman recording the video says, "Nothing will happen," and the driver agrees with her.

In a split second later, the elephant charges towards them with a loud trumpet, and the horrified group yells, "run, run."

The video shared by IFS officer Surender Mehra has garnered more than 8k views, and netizens criticised the group for acting irresponsibly in the situation.
