Beijing - Tigers at a wildlife park in Beijing killed one woman and injured another after the pair left their vehicle following an argument, Chinese media reported on Sunday.

The attack took place at Beijing Badaling Wildlife World on Saturday, Chinanews.com reported, when one of the women left the vehicle following an altercation. A tiger quickly attacked her and dragged her off, prompting the second woman to leave the vehicle in an attempt to help, it wrote on its microblog account.

Another tiger mauled her to death, before carrying off her body.

CCTV video has emerged, showing the moment the woman was attacked by the animal and then dragged off.

The two women were accompanied by a man - who aided the rescue attempt - and a small child, who were uninjured, it said, adding that the park has been ordered to close for "rectification".

The park allows visitors to drive their own cars safari style through an open space where the animals roam free.

Visitors are cautioned not to alight from their vehicles.
