A woman in the US had a close shave while trying to outrun a bison and finally escaped an attack by pretending to be dead.
A video of the incident, which took place at the Yellowstone National Park, shows a bison suddenly charging towards two women. The duo start to run but suddenly one of them trips and falls on the ground.
According to an ABC news report, the people in the area yelled and told the woman to play dead in order to escape the rampaging bison. Fortunately, the trick worked and the bison can be seen walking away from the woman.

The teen, who shot the video, spoke to the lady after the incident. “She was like wow, this is crazy,” Cloie Musumecci told the news website. “She’s actually from New York but she lives in Montana, so she knew that I needed to play dead and not get up and keep running because he was already close to me.”
