Flex formating in Safari

I am having some issues with displaying content that has a flex box in safari. Here is the basic HTML code:

<div class="panel">
  <div class="panel-heading">Heading</div>
  <div class="panel-body">
    Body with a lot of content 
    Body with a lot of content 
    Body with a lot of content 
    Body with a lot of content 
    Body with a lot of content
    Body with a lot of content 
    Body with a lot of content 
    Body with a lot of content
    Body with a lot of content
  </div>
</div>

I'm writing is SASS and here is the basic styling of the content....

.panel{
  border: 1px solid black;
  display: flex;
  & > .panel-heading {
    border: 1px solid green;
  }
  & > .panel-body {
    border: 1px solid blue;
  }
}

The problem occurs in Safari only: The first flex item panel-heading is being overtaken by the second flex item panel-body.

Here is a JSFiddle for your viewing https://jsfiddle.net/kf8yybwx/1/
