Family’s car catches on fire — in lion habitat
Helen Clements and her kids are forced to make a frantic decision during their drive through a safari park.
A mother her young children faced an agonizing choice on a recent visit to a safari park in England, when their car burst into flames in the middle of a lion habitat.
Helen Clements and her two young kids, visiting the Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, England, Friday, had to make a split-second decision whether to take the chance that the flames didn’t reach them before help arrived, or trust themselves to the mercy of the lions outside.
“You’re stuck and you can’t control and you can’t do anything about it,” Clements said.
Other tourists in the safari park couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
