An American tourist has been mauled to death in South Africa after a lion jumped into her vehicle through an open window at a park on the outskirts of Johannesburg, police and officials said.

“She was driving with a male person at the park, they were attacked by the lion, she was killed at the park and the man has been taken to hospital,” police spokesman Lungelo Dlamini said on Monday.

Dlamini said he did not have a name for the 22-year-old woman or what part of the United States she was from. Her travelling companion was South African.

The woman died while paramedics tried to save her, Lion Park assistant director of operations Scott Simpson said.

“The gentleman sustained some injuries to his arm, he was fighting the lion off inside the car. Our staff rushed over immediately and chased the lion away from the car,” Simpson told local radio.

Last month, a lion killed a man at a zoo in the South African city of East London after he jumped into the animal’s enclosure.

Viewer discretion please…

So sad! Death by lion is terrible. Eye witnesses said the 22-year-old woman was taking photos of the lions from her car when a lioness crawled quietly and jumped through the open window of the car and started mauling her.
This incident happened today when the young woman went there as a tourist. Many people blame her though for winding down the glass of her car against the park's instructions for visitors.
This is so unfortunate sad

Most Amaricans come to see wild animals with that Lion King mentality.They assume that cartoon is real life and lions are friendly affectionate animals.A lion is a predator and has killer instincts ingrained in its genes, it doesn't know who has a caring heart..The unnecessary affection showed has resulted in her death....Thats the wild for you.

No friendship in Jungle. undecided

It was a great mistake from her. I just saw it in the news. Big instruction was "Do not wind the window of your car at all times when in the zoo but she wind down and before she knows it, it was late to wind up and she was killed. Sometimes, when we receive instructions, it benefit the one who complies with it rather than the one who gave the instruction but people always think they can get away with it by disobeying. Listen, Obey and be blessed.

Jeez, if only she had listened to instructions she wouldn't have ended up as part of the food chain.

As an old adage go, "fly wey no dey hear word dey follow dead body enter grave".

Even animals are killing foreigners? There's no difference between some South Africans and animals. #Xenophobia in South Africa must stop! President Zuma and the wicked king of Zulu most be investigated.

RIP to the American tourist.
