A Lion Grabbed Her Baby On Live TV, Trainer’s Crazy Advice Saves The Day

From Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction at Superbowl XXXVIII to Steve Harvey’s announcement of the wrong Miss Universe Winner in 2016, live TV is full of unexpected moments. After all, the unpredictability of live TV is what makes it interesting. Throw a lion in there, and you’re in for a wild ride.

What started as a normal day on a morning talk show quickly turned into a potential nightmare when a young lion grabbed a toddler. How the trainer responded is simply amazing.

Disaster Strikes

The Mexican morning program Con Sello de Mujer was going as planned until the small child sitting on her mother’s lap let out a whine. And then, out of nowhere, the lion grabbed the child by the foot.

Instead of freaking out, the trainer did the unimaginable.

“Calm Down, Calm Down”

The little girl let out a shriek when the lion gripped her feet with its teeth. “Calm down, calm down,” the trainer said with a steady tone as the lion pulled the baby by the foot out of her mother’s lap. The mother was obviously shaken, but listened to the trainer in order to save her daughter’s life.

Amazingly, the trainer was able to keep her cool and soothed the mother and child to avoid distressing the lion further and causing the situation to escalate.

Safe And Sound

The trainer then embraced the young girl who continued to shriek after she was rescued from peril. The trainer brought mom in for a hug, too, after everyone was safe and sound.

Thanks to the lion trainer’s expert advice and unwavering calmness, the child and mother both made it home safely. The trainer’s quick yet controlled action was nothing short of incredible given one of the most dangerous predators in the jungle was just moments away from assaulting the young girl. Today’s lesson? Toddlers, lions, and live TV don’t mix.
