One woman was killed and another wounded when tigers attacked them at a Beijing, China, wildlife park (video below).

On July 23, two women, a man and a child were driving through Beijing Badaling Wildlife World when an argument prompted them to stop their car, AFP reports.

The video shows the car come to a stop and one of the women exits on the passenger side. She walks around the front of the car to the driver’s side, where a man has opened the door.

A tiger then approaches the woman from behind, lifts its front paws and grabs her with its mouth. The tiger drags her away from the vehicle outside of camera view.

The man then gets out of the car and goes after her, as does a woman who was sitting in the backseat.

The woman who tried to help her friend was mauled to death, before being carried away by another tiger.

The other woman was injured and is recovering in a hospital.

Beijing Badaling Wildlife World is a safari-like park that allows visitors to drive their own cars through an open space where animals roam free. Visitors are cautioned to not leave their vehicles.

The park is now closed for "rectification."

This is at least the second tiger attack that has taken place at the park. In 2014, a security guard was mauled to death.
