This is crazzzzy!
A 55-year-old woman in the jungle region of northern Malaysia rescued her husband from a tiger by beating the beast on the head with a large wooden soup ladle.
What sounds like a suicide attempt actually worked and she successfully chased the tiger away from her husband who was nearly killed.
The woman's husband was attacked while hunting squirrels near their home in a jungle settlement of the Jahai tribe.
He tried to escape by climbing a tree, but was ripped down by the tiger. When his wife heard his screams and ran out, armed to the teeth, with a soup ladle.
While recovering at a local hospital, the victim of the attack said:
"I was terrified and I used all my strength to punch the animal in the face, but it would not budge. I had to wrestle with it to keep its jaws away from me, and it would have clawed me to death if my wife had not arrived."
Hunting squirrels? Climbing trees? Attacked by tigers? Three more terrifying reminders why we don't live in the jungle.
