British pop star Jennifer Ellison has rescued a little girl from being crushed to death by an elephant.

The BYE BYE BOY star, 21, was holidaying in Thailand when STACEY YOUNG, four, fell under an elephant during a tourist ride but was scooped up by Ellison, who jumped in the animal's path.

A witness says, "Stacey's mum and dad were obviously extremely grateful and offered to buy her a meal. When Jennifer politely declined, they kept insisting on some kind of reward, but she wanted to play the whole thing down.

"It was an amazing thing that she did. The child could have easily been killed. You could tell she was a trained dancer by the way she moved."
