In February 2006, Lydia and her two sons were walking through their village in northern Canada. The sound of children shouting made her turn around. To her horror, Lydia saw a 700-pound polar bear behind her eyeing her seven-year-old son. Getting between the bear and her child, Lydia yelled at the children to run away.

What does "Getting between" in the above refer to? Is it "Standing between" or "Coming between?" Thanks.

I don't see any difference in meaning between your two options. She positioned herself between the bear and her children - both of your options describe this.

Thanks, Nona.

Does "coming between" involve "action" while "standing between" doesn't?
