A frightening video of a lion attacking its trainer during a circus performance in Egypt is quickly making its way around the Internet.
Faten El-Helw walked away from the cat’s heart-stopping pounce during a performance in the city of Tanta, in the Nile delta on Thursday.
Other trainers and circus security guards saved her life.
El-Helw was transferred to hospital, where her condition is currently stable, according to the Ahram Arabic news website.
“Thank God and Allah wants to do, God of the throne saved me. I am fine and thank God,” She wrote on Facebook.
According to Ahram Online, El-Helw’s late-husband died in 2004 after a lion attacked him.
