article imageLion kills American tourist in South African park

By AFP     Jun 1, 2015 in World

A lion leapt through a open car window and mauled to death an American tourist at a privately-run game park just outside Johannesburg on Monday, a park official said.

"There was a car driving to the lion camp and the lion did come through the window and bite the lady," Scott Simpson, operations manager of The Lion Park venue told Talk Radio 702.

"The ambulance arrived quite soon, but the lady had passed away."

The woman and another American tourist were travelling through the park, northeast of the South African city, with their car windows open.

The second tourist suffered injuries sustained while trying to free the woman, the radio station reported.
