Paul Iga was clenched in the mouth of a hippopotamus just a few hundred yards away from the edge of Lake Edward, Uganda.
The hippopotamus seemed taken aback by this and vomited up the toddler- after swallowing half of him before trudging back to the water.
While Paul was injured and taken to a clinic for treatment, he miraculously survived the attack.
It is reported that the young boy was transferred to a hospital in Bwera but was released after taking a rabies vaccine.
In a statement, Ugandan Police said:
‘This is the first such kind of incident where a hippo strayed out of Lake Edward and attacked a young child.
‘It took the bravery of one Chrispas Bagonza, who was nearby, to save the victim after he stoned the hippo and scared it, causing it to release the victim from its mouth.’
Indeed. God is the protector of mankind.
