A woman has died after being attacked by a lioness at a South African game reserve.
The attack took place at a lodge in Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria.
A Netcare 911 spokesman told local media:
"Reports from the scene allege that a 22-year-old female victim was attacked and mauled by a lioness.
"When Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene bystanders had initiated CPR. Tragically the victim had sustained severe injuries and she died at the scene."
South Africa’s Rekord newspaper says police are at the scene.
It is unclear whether the young woman was local or a tourist.
