A lioness came to the rescue of her cub at Zoo Miami as it almost slipped into a moat


A 10-year-old who was at Zoo Miami on Aug. 3 captured video of a lion rescuing a lion cub after it fell into a moat.

Amanda Carmeli, who was there with her mom and dad, shot the video on her cellphone. She said after she stopped recording all the other lions licked and cleaned the cub.

It's unclear how the cub ended up in the moat.
