Alright...this happened in the Toledo zoo (near where I live) so I can explain what happened. Mr. Redfox (the trainer in video) had worked with this seven year old elephant for its entire life. After the attack, Redfox said that he had never seen the elephant act like it did and that the attack was completely unprovoked. He probably should have observed the warning signs, but when he finally did catch on, it was too late.

There's a reason why they're called wild animals.

the elephant was obviously aggravated at something outside, or maybe a baby or other relative was out there. The animal was already nervous the first time it pushed him out. He should have took the hint. When he came back, it felt threatened. Like SunnyNphilly said, animals have body language. If you are going to work with them, you better learn it.

Alot of trainers and zookeepers have terrible methods and practices when handling elephants (beating, cattle prods, skin hooks, etc...), but I wouldn't be too quick to say that life in captivity is the main culprit. Elephants regularly do this sort of thing out in the wild too. They are huge animals, so when they have an aggressive moment or "tantrum", they can really do some damage. It's all about respecting the power and personality of the animal, and realizing that, no matter how tame any animal may seem, they will always be a little bit wild.

What happened between 0:45 and 0:46? It looks like the elephant teleported. But when I look closely alot of things change in 1 second?

Considering what "Tillamook" the Orca did, I'd say this dude's lucky and we'd be wise to quit keeping animals like this in goddamn cages for our amusement.

Idk, looks like the elephant as pretty damn gentle considering it could've stomped on that guy till he was dead. He just knocked him to the ground and stood over him like,

I like how he teleported at the end.

If he has those powers, why didn't he just teleport out of the way?

Maybe it wasn't a circus where they deliberately cause pain to "train" the animal to perform, but circuses aren't all fun and games for the animals involved. They are still kept in cages or enclosures smaller than they would like in the wild, and aren't given enough enrichment to keep themselves entertained. Common zoo animal behavior is pacing back and forth, sleeping, staring, turning in circles, and that is all because they are bored. People stare at them all day, yelling. It isn't exactly what I would consider fun. I never liked zoos. In my opinion if you want to see animals, so visit a sanctuary for abused animals, or a wildlife reserve.
Anyway. Good for the elephant. That guy deserved it, he wasn't leaving it alone when it clearly expressed a wish to stand and stare wistfully at free life outside he's not allowed to have yet.
