The incident took place at Badaling Wildlife Park in China's capital

One woman has been killed and another injured, after they were mauled by tigers in Beijing’s Badaling Wildlife Park.

The incident occurred when one woman got out of the car at the Siberian tiger enclosure. CCTV footage shows the woman getting out of the car and standing beside the vehicle, before being attacked and dragged away by a tiger.

The second woman, who is believed to be her mother, was killed as she tried to help. The older woman was mauled to death by another tiger after she got out of the car, as park rangers frantically tried to intervene. The footage shows the rangers arriving promptly to the scene.

A man, who was also in the car with the women, was unhurt.

Beijing’s Badaling Wildlife World warn visitors to not get out of their vehicles in areas that are open to animals.

According to the Yangqing district government, the woman who survived is currently receiving medical treatment. Park officials have declined to comment, citing heavy rain forecasts for the facility’s closure.

Viewer discretion advised.
