A woman who was mauled by a lion near Johannesburg has been identified as Katherine Chappell. The 29-year-old Chappell worked as special effects editor for Game of Thrones, reports Daily Mail.

Katherine Chappell, who was in Africa raising money for a charitable organization that protects animals from poachers, was killed by the lioness as she took pictures during a drive through the popular Lion Park, near Johannesburg, on Monday afternoon.

Her identity emerged as tour guide Pierre Potgieter, 66, told how he had suffered a heart attack as he tried to save Miss Chappell’s life. Mr Potgieter denied he had flouted rules at the safari park and put his client’s life in danger by driving with the windows open.



In the statement released by his wife, it said that Miss Chappell had opened the window ‘of her own accord’, and at the last moment.
