Madhya Pradesh woman fights off tiger, saves her year-old son

However, she kept shouting and praying for help, thus alerting the villagers who then chased away the animal. The child suffered injuries to his head while his mother suffered injuries all over her body.

In an exemplary show of courage, a woman fought off a tiger to save her son from its jaws in Jabalpur, near the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh.
In the tiger attack in Rohaniya village earlier this week, both the woman and her son were injured, and are currently admitted to a hospital. They are in stable conditions.

"We were informed that the tiger is roaming out (outside the tiger reserve) and people were coming to see the tiger. But the woman wasn't aware of the tiger. Both of them were injured in the attack and admitted to a government hospital. Later, they were shifted to Jabalpur Medical College. Currently, both the mother and child are fine," Lavit Bharti, manager, Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve told news agency ANI.

The one-and-a-half years old boy was attacked by the tiger when his mother was taking care of their farm. The woman shielded her child and kept facing every attack by the tiger. It may be noted that the woman had no weapon to save herself from the tiger.

However, she kept shouting and praying for help, thus alerting the villagers who then chased away the animal. The child suffered injuries to his head while his mother suffered injuries all over her body.

Bhola Chowdhary, the husband of the injured woman, said she had taken the child to the farm when the tiger attacked her. "She didn't have any idea about the tiger being outside. She took the child to the farm where the tiger was hiding. It attacked her and she was severely injured," he said.
