|Hero mother saves son from mountain lion attack
A woman has been called a hero after fighting off a mountain lion that was attacking her five-year-old son. Her motherly instincts appeared as she dragged her little boy away from the big cat. She beat the wild animal with her fists in her garden, where her son had been playing. The boy suffered bites and cuts to his head and body after the lion pounced. He is now in a stable condition in a local hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery. A spokesperson from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife said the mother was a "true hero" for saving her son's life.
