SINGAPORE: A Sarawakian man working as a cleaner at the Singapore Zoo died Thursday after he was mauled by a white tiger.

Nordin Mondong, 32, is believed to have fallen into the moat surrounding the white tiger enclosure at about 12.15pm and was immediately pounced on by the three big cats weighing over 100kg each.

The Singapore Zoo has three Bengal white tigers - Omar, Winnie, and Jippie.

Earlier this year, nine-year-old Omar was shortlisted as a possible contender to replace Ah Meng as the zoo’s icon.

Terrified visitors near the section watched the vicious attack in horror and screamed.

Three zoo keepers were alerted to the commotion and sprang to rescue Nordin. Two of them tried to distract the three tigers and managed to keep them under control but a third kept on mauling Nordin.

The keepers managed to pull the cleaner to safety and rushed him to hospital. But he died on the way.

Nordin started working at the Zoo in June.

It is believed he was not supposed to be in the tiger enclosure and was assigned to clean the chimpanzee section.

He was seen behaving in an agitated manner before he fell into the moat. - ANN/Straits Times
