(WJBK) -

Tourists inside South Africa's Kruger National Park witnessed an impala cheat death as it jumped into an SUV to avoid a pair of hungry cheetahs.

And the whole incident was caught on film.

The Daily Telegraph reports two women were recording a herd of impalas leaping past their vehicles in a frantic rush to escape the pursuing cats. Moments later, a separated impala runs back the other way and leaps through the SUV's open window to avoid two cheetahs.

"All of a sudden we saw the impala jump out of the bushes and then someone started screaming 'it is in the car, it is in the car,'" videographer Samantha Pittendrigh told the newspaper.

Tourists opened the door and the dazed impala was able to walk away unharmed.
