A safari-goer in South Africa has told how he took a photo capturing the moment that a lioness attacked and killed a fellow tourist.

Ben Govender, 38, had grabbed his camera for what he thought would be simply a memorable photograph of the lioness peering through the window of Katherine Chappell's vehicle.

To his horror, the animal lunged forwards and bit her shoulder, before pushing into the car and fatally mauling her. Chappell, 29, who had wound down her window for a close-up encounter, died from her injuries.
