A fearless woman used her own body to shield a child from two huge dogs who were brutally attacking him.
Mohamed Ehab was attacked by two vicious dogs in the Madinaty suburb of the Egyptian capital Cairo.
In the CCTV footage, the boy can be seen standing in the road with two other youngsters when the two large dogs bound into view.
When they notice the youngsters are sprinting away they turn and begin chasing them, and quickly bear down on Ehab as he sprints towards a building.
But just as he reaches the top of the steps the dogs catch up with him, and drag him down the steps where he gets to his feet and runs away again.
