Initial reports said that the woman stormed out of the car while having an argument with her husband. Family friends denied that claim, though, and say that the woman simply believed that the family had safely left the area that held the vicious big cats.
Her husband, also seen leaving the car to go after her, survived the bizarre incident. But in a further tragedy, the couple’s young child was also in the car, and saw the death of the grandmother who gave her life for her daughter.
These photos of the horrifying aftermath shows the troubled survivor — but the horrific incident also highlighted other troubling reports of problems at the wildlife park! Badaling Wildlife World is located in a prominent section of central Beijing — and a park employee had been killed by an elephant there earlier in 2016.
A security guard who left his vehicle was killed by a tiger in 2014. A teen died there in 2009 after reportedly scaling a wall from outside to take a shortcut. Workers at Badaling Wildlife World announced in October that visitors now have to sign a safety notification agreement before entering the park — and guards are instructed to shout, "Don't get out of the car!" 300 times a day.
