n American woman has been killed by a lion that jumped into a car and attacked her at a nature park in South Africa, according to reports.
The attack, at Lion Park outside Johannesburg, is said to have left another passenger of the car, a man, with serious injuries.
The pair may have been travelling in a car though the park with its windows open, according to the eNCA website.
The site quoted Scott Simpson, a manager at the lion park, as saying that the lion appears to have jumped into the car and bitten the woman. He added that the man was injured trying to protect the woman.
"Our staff working at the top of the camp tried to get the lion away from the car. Ambulances were called immediately but it was too late," Mr Simpson said.
Visitors to the park are told not to leave their windows open.

The attack is the third at the park in the past four months.


The park sure puts a lot of faith in the strength of a glass window. It seems they have a problem that I hope they investigate and figure out a solution.

Lions are powerful creatures, goes without saying. I'm not all that convinced that the window would save anyone if the lion goes on a full blown attack.

She worked behind the scenes on Game of Thrones. The news this morning was showing a photo of her posing with an Emmy.


I'll stick with visiting lions at the zoo. I don't think a windshield could protect me from a lion anymore than those gerbil ball things will protect the people in the new Jurrasic Park movie from the dinosaurs.
