Default Can a lvl 9 Elf win by helping?

Very new player here with what is probably a simple question to answer for most of you:

If a level 9 player is in combat, and a lvl 9 Elf helps them beat a monster, do they both win the game (since an Elf gets to go up a level when they help defeat a monster), or does the Elf not win because it was not their turn / monster?

Same point, I assume no one lower than level 9 would ever want help from a lvl 9 Elf since it would give the Elf the win (if in fact the lvl 9 Elf can win the game helping others).

Confused. Could someone clear me up? Thanks!

Note - This is for the original / deluxe game when 10 wins it, not the Epic game which goes to level 20.

Yes, an elf can win by helping

Important Note #1: Reaching Level 10
Note also that ANY level gained as a result of killing a monster counts as the winning level. (If a card says a monster is automatically defeated, this counts as a kill unless the card says otherwise.) If you have a Race or Class ability that lets you get an extra level after winning certain combats, that level can be the winning level. A Go Up a Level card played after combat, however, cannot be, because the card does not itself kill the monster.
