Heart-stopping moment: Lion opens door and tries to attack car driver through open window in South Africa

After Game of Thrones editor Katherine Chappell was tragically mauled to death by a lion that attacked her in her car, a further reminder of just how careful we need to be around big cats – even if we’re in a vehicle – has emerged.

Shocking footage posted online shows an African lion becoming fed up at being ogled at and deciding to turn a group of onlookers into its prey.

The incident was captured on camera at a safari park in Johannesburg, South Africa, and shows the moment the lion goes from resting by the side of a car, to jumping up at the window to attack.

The car driver can be heard attempting to frighten the animal away by blowing the horn as the predator attacks the side of the vehicle.

The video maker records the animal as it fishes through the open window with its large paw.

Later the filmmaker records the floor for a moment while ensuring that his own window is closed.

After blowing the horn to no avail, the attacked driver begins manoeuvring the car out of the way.

No one was injured by the lion and the driver was able to continue driving away after the camera stopped rolling

According to the video maker, no one was injured by the lion and the driver was able to continue driving away after the camera stopped rolling.

Katherine Chappell died in a similar incident in a safari park in the north of Johannesburg on June 1, 2015.

Engineer Ben Govender, 38, who was in the car behind Miss Chappell when the attack took place, said ‘no one could have imagined’ what would happen in the minutes after he took an extraordinary photograph showing the lion mounting the side of the vehicle.
