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.

    The boy fell, at least a group of them grown men could have jumped in to fend the tiger off untill security arrives. NO! Instead its easier to film what was going on and show the rest of the world.

    It was a silly mistake on boy side but also of the crowd.they were busy shooting the incident ….what the hell was security personnels doing at that time….no weapon to help the poor boy….Shame to them…. That was all done to save that White tiger who has an extinct species that’s why they didn’t come…

    Its easy to say all this why wasnt the boy careful. Maybe the fences need to be a little higher so boys as short as him even cant fall when u know a deadly beast is right down there .
