A man was saved after jumping to a tiger den in central China’s Henan Province.
CCTV footage from the Wangcheng Park on Dec 19 shows that the man leaping out of the chairlift and into the tiger enclosure below.
The 42-year-old man, surnamed Ren, fell onto a protective net, and moments later, the tiger underneath began to circle.
Ren was saved about 20 minutes later.
To the surprise of zoo employers, he appeared pretty calm after the incident, saying he “didn’t do a good somersault” when making the leap.
