Mothers worldwide will do whatever it takes to protect their babies, even when know they will most likely be harmed or killed for following their natural instincts.
A mother in India actually fought off a tiger with her bare hands to save her 15-month-old son.
With Claws stabbing into her lungs, a 25-year-old mother fought and pulled her son from the massive predator’s mouth.
Archana Choudhary, 25, lives near the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve and said she took her son out of their hut at night as he needed to relieve himself.
That’s when a tiger jumped from the bushes and attacked the child, clamping down on the baby’s head. Choudhary leaped to the rescue, using her bare hands to fight the tiger off.
This scuffle went on for two minutes before villagers came running to her aid.
The mother and child were then taken to the intensive care unit. Choudhary suffered punctured lungs and deep wounds. The child suffered head injuries.
Both are expected to make a full recovery. The family can be seen recovering in the video below.
