According to NBC News, a lion attacked and killed an American woman on Monday as a tour guide drove her around a South African animal enclosure at the Park, police and park officials said.
“The lioness approached from the passenger side and bit the lady through the window,” said Scott Simpson, the assistant operations manager at Lion Park, an open-air facility north of Johannesburg.
The woman was not immediately identified, but police said she was 22 and died before authorities got to the scene. The U.S. Embassy also said it had no information but would follow up to provide help.
The tour guide is reportedly in serious condition at a hospital, police said. Park officials said he sustained arm injuries while fighting the lion off.
Simpson however said witnesses told park officials that the windows were down.
