A tiger attack at a Beijing wildlife park left one woman dead and one other injured after the two exited their vehicle in the safari-style exhibit, ABC News reports. The incident occurred at the Beijing Badaling Wildlife World in Yanqing district on Saturday. 

At Beijing Badaling Wildlife World, guests are permitted to drive around the park to observe wildlife in a safari-like atmosphere. However, they are prohibited from leaving their vehicles for safety reasons.

According to Chinese media, a woman exited the private vehicle during an argument with one of the other passengers. CCTV cameras captured a Siberian tiger as it pounced on the woman approximately 15 seconds after she got out of the car.  As the woman was being dragged off by the tiger, a male and female passenger then exited the same vehicle in an effort to help. The second woman was then mauled to death by another tiger. 

Park employees rushed to the scene but were only able to help one of the victims, who is currently receiving treatment at a hospital. The man, and a child who was also in the car, was not harmed. 

The attraction has since been closed, and an investigation is underway. 

It is reported that similar incidents have previously occurred at the park, including the death of a security guard who was mauled by a tiger in 2014.
