The eagle was unable to attack the children as the family thought it intended, as the bird hit a window behind the children with some force, as a result of its rapid deviation from the two children, and Nicole, 40, said the eagle certainly tried to attack four-year-old Lulu.
The bird suffered a blow to the head after hitting the glass and quietly flew to the window for the second time while trying to recover, this time being photographed by the family’s oldest child, Isabella, aged 12, to document the incident.
“It was the craziest thing,” Nicole said. “He was definitely trying to attack the two kids. It flew on them at high speed,” she said. “Thank God, Gabriel saw him at the right time and was able to swerve and drag Lulu with him, so the bird hit a window instead of attacking them.”
The British family believes that the bird that hit them was an eastern imperial eagle, a large predator with a wingspan of more than two meters.
