A mother has died after trying to save her daughter from a tiger attack at a drive-through animal park in Beijing, The New York Times reports.

The two women, along with the daughter's husband and the couple's child, were visiting the Badaling Wildlife World park when the attack occurred.

According to the Times, a Beijing news source has reported that the younger woman left the car after an argument with her husband. In the below video, which was captured by a park surveillance camera, you can see her exit from the passenger door and walk around to the other side of the vehicle. Within seconds, a tiger attacks, and the woman's husband and mother run after her in an attempt to save her.

Although park workers were on the scene nearly immediately after the attack (which you can also see in the surveillance camera footage), they were not able to save the woman's mother. The younger woman was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, and her husband remained unharmed, the Times reports. The couple's child, who stayed in the vehicle during the time of the attack, was also unharmed.

Badaling Wildlife World visitors are prohibited from exiting their vehicles and warned to keep their car doors locked and windows closed, NBC News reports, but this isn't the first time that the park has seen a tragic animal-related death. A park employee was killed by an elephant in March, and a security guard, who had stepped out of a patrol vehicle, was killed by a tiger in 2014, according to the Times.

USA Today reports that the Yanqing County government is currently investigating the incident.
