A tourist vehicle robbed a cheetah's lunch when an impala it was chasing jumped inside an SUV in South Africa. The lucky tourists — with their mobile phone video cameras — stopped along the road to capture the impala herd running for their lives from their biggest predator when an impala jumped in the car.
In the rare video above, the impalas showcase the lightning-quick sprinting and jumping abilities that make it look as if the big cats have no chance of catching them. But somehow, in the one of a kind scene caught on video, one impala gets lost from the herd as two cheetahs close in on it.
In a leap of faith, with a small window of opportunity, the impala jumped in the SUV car window and manage to avoid harm's way. The people inside the vehicle were stunned as were the cheetahs.
Sometimes in life, you have just to take a leap of faith and allow things to take care of themselves just like the impala did. A voice from the car says, “Open the door, open the door,” as the impala walks out safely on the other side of the road.
Samantha Pittendrigh captured this incredible video on her mobile phone at Kruger National Park in South Africa, as reported by GrindTV.
