Tragedy struck at approximately 1:30 pm on Tuesday, at the Delhi zoo in India, when a class 12 student fell into one of the animal enclosures and was mauled to death by a white tiger. Witnesses on the scene said the boy accidently slipped and fell into the enclosure after leaning over a low barricade.
While zoo personnel were on the scene, witnesses say there was nothing they could do to save the boy. The white tiger killed the young boy within minutes of the attack.
