A 500-pound Bengal Tiger escaped from its cage at a zoo in Miami. As visitors fled into any secure area they could find, the tiger approached a 2-year old girl named Dianita Barratt. Her mother, Diana Barratt, said:

"She started walking down the trail ahead of me, and I decided just to leave the stroller and my purse behind and go after her," Diana said. "I rounded the corner and she's standing there staring at this tiger. It's very scary to have your 2-year-old daughter in such close proximity to a tiger."

Barratt calmly picked her daughter up, and was quickly escorted by park employees to a secure building.
