During a routine cleaning at Conservators Center in Caswell County, a lion managed to escape and fatally attack one of the employees. 22-year-old Andrea Black was an intern there and the lion got out of a locked area before she was killed, according to ABC.

Andrea had only been working there for two weeks before the tragic event occurred. The lion attacked the entire cleaning crew but Andrea was the only one that died.

Authorities tried to tranquilize the lion but the attempt failed and they were forced to kill the lion for safety reasons. The zoology center is currently closed until further notice.
