COMM:This extraordinary footage shows a lion being flipped five metres into the air. COMM: The juvenile predator was about to complete a kill, before a giant male buffalo intervened
to save his friend from certain death. COMM: The hungry duo spent forty five minutes stalking their prey in the Kruger National
Park, South Africa. COMM: But after bringing down the defenceless buffalo, one lion left itself open to a surprise
attack. COMM: The astonishing moment was captured by 52 year old Ian Matheson, and his sixteen
year old son Oliver, during an early morning safari. COMM: Amazingly all of the animals walked away from the encounter with no major injuries.
