Latino TV host Raul De Molina was left fearing for his life during a safari trip in South Africa last weekend (12-13Jun10) after his car caught fire and forced him out into the lion enclosure.
The Emmy Award-winning presenter, best known for hosting El Gordo y la Flaca on U.S. channel Univision, is in South Africa covering the ongoing World Cup soccer tournament.
But his attempt to take time out from his busy schedule with a relaxing outing to see the country's wildlife went awry - and ended in a trip to the hospital.
De Molina tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "The car kept stalling with the lions running freely around. I could see smoke coming out of the hood, and after 15 minutes the car started burning. I knew it was a no-win situation. If I stayed in the car I was going to die, and if I leave, then a lion would eat me. But because of the smoke I had to get out. I thought someone would rescue me, but 30 minutes later I was still waiting. The safari ranger had told me that 10 years ago, a Chinese tourist had got out of his car and was eaten alive."
Luckily the Cuban star was saved from the lions by a South African family who escorted him away from danger in their car.
De Molina was admitted to hospital and treated for smoke inhalation before getting back to work.
