Very rarely would you find someone who can think clearly during a stressful situation. 

But that's what we all aim for in life; to be cool, calm, and collected during the most unbecoming of times. 

Because experts will tell you that that is the only way you can find a solution and come out on top of the stress. 

A 12-year-old boy was sitting inside a room at a wedding hall in Malegaon, India. This young boy was the perfect example of how having a cool head in a stressful situation can be life-saving. 

In a video that was shared online, a young boy is seen sitting on a bench playing on his phone. 

He is close to the door and facing it, when suddenly a leopard strolls in and walks straight past him. 

The young boy did not panic but instead unplugged his phone from the charger and proceeded to walk out of the room, closing the door behind him. 

"The leopard was so close," he told the Times of India. "There was hardly any space between the leopard and me. It walked into the office's inner cabin right before me. I was scared, but I quietly got off the bench and sneaked out of the office. I closed the door behind me." (Newsweek)
