Bat Falls From Sky Next to Woman in Shocking Viral Video

Footage of a woman being surprised by a falling bat has gone viral on TikTok, having attracted more than 19.3 million views.

In the video, shared to the app by a woman called Lana, known online as Alanahburt, we can see the brunette TikToker lying on the ground outside a parking lot.

She turns and says "what you doing? What you doing?" as the large bat, who has fallen next to her flaps its wings causing her to scream and scramble away.

The camera then focuses in on the brown furry animal, who has a very large wingspan, lying on its stomach on the tarmac.

Alanahburt captioned the shocking video, writing: "A bat just fell next to me, normal people vs me after a night out #fyp."

If you find a wild bat, Tufts Wildlife Clinic advises not to touch it "with your bare hands."

The site continues: "Bats are wild animals and should be treated with great care.

"Never attempt to feed, treat, or wash an injured bat. Do not attempt to rehabilitate a bat on your own. This is to protect you as well as the bat."

Recently, a video showing an entire wedding party surprised by the intrusion of a wild animal went viral online.

In footage shared to TikTok by Angie Diaz we can see the heart-stopping moment a black bear arrived at her cousin's wedding, knocking over items as the guests stay still.

Diaz maintains she wasn't scared but rather "mesmerized."
