Tiger and Two Women – level 3
When this woman stepped out of the car amid an argument with her husband, she could barely have imagined the horror that awaited her.
This CCTV footage was captured inside a Siberian tiger enclosure at a wildlife park in Beijing. It shows a tiger appearing suddenly on the road and dragging the woman away. Her husband quickly jumps out after her, followed by the woman's mother, who was in the back of the car.
Miraculously, the woman pictured survived the incident, but sustained serious injuries. Her mother, who tried to save her, was killed. Meanwhile, the woman's husband, and a child who remained inside the car, were unhurt.
It's not the first fatal attack in this wildlife park. In 2014, a park employee was also mauled to death by a tiger.
Difficult words: amid (during), CCTV footage (security camera video), capture (record), enclosure (an animal’s area), drag (move), miraculously (by a miracle, amazingly), pictured (showed in the video), sustain (have), remain (stay), fatal (deadly), maul (attack violently).
