French family were miraculously saved from a pack of cheetahs

A group of French tourists visited a safari park - in the Netherlands - and sauntered around despite a nearby group of cheetahs.

In the video, you see a man exit the vehicle and take pictures of the cats.

A woman carrying a child is seen shooing off the approaching cheetah as she steadily makes her way back to the vehicle.

In a video recorded by another vehicle visiting Beekse Bergen wildlife park outside Tilburg, a French family can be seen fleeing as the wild animals starts to hunt them.

Suddenly, a cheetah runs toward them and other cheetahs begin to lurch toward them as they run away with little time to spare.

The family - including at least one small child - managed to make it back to their vehicle without anyone being hurt.

He said the family had clearly ignored park advice not to get out of the auto. A park spokesman told the station that visitors are instructed to never to leave their vehicles.

"We inform visitors about the risks in several languages throughout the park", the spokesman told NOS Radio 1 News.

Onlookers recording the footage can be heard saying "jesus!" and "what the f*ck" in the background.

The animals were said to be in risky proximity to the people, but in this case, behaved like they were more curious than aggressive.

First tourists stopped the auto directly next to the cheetahs and coming out of it, began to photograph the animals.

Cheetahs are the fastest animals in the world, clocking in at speeds of up to 61 miles per hour, according to the Conservation Institute.
