Mumbai: 30 September 2021

 

An elderly woman in India, survived a deadly attack by a crouching and hidden leopard.

 

The incident took place at the wooded Aarey Milk Colony area of Mumbai, on September 29 night.

 

CCTV captured the entire event that unfolded outside 55-year-old Nirmaladevi Rambadan Singh’s house at around 7.45 pm.

 

Just like the movie name ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ which in itself is a literal translation of a Chinese idiom which describes a place or situation that is full of unnoticed masters, the leopard saunters in the bushes near the woman’s home.

 

It crouches and lays in wait. In a few minutes, the woman using a walking stick comes out of her home to get a breath of fresh air and sits on a ledge without knowing the lurking danger.

 

In a few seconds, the crouching leopard pounces on her. Panic stricken, the elderly woman falls back, but tries to stave off the attack with her walking stick and shouts for help. The confused leopard then backs off and rushes back into the bushes, disappearing into the night’s darkness, as the woman’s family members rush out to her help.

 

Nirmaladevi was clawed on her jaw and her back by the leopard, and is said to be stable.

 

Before this, in a similar incident, a four-year-old boy had to be rescued by the locals when a leopard tried to drag him away from near his house.

 

In a previous incident, a three-year-old boy had been attacked by a leopard.
