In an apparent suicide attempt, a man jumped into a lion enclosure at a zoo in Chile.

According to CNN, the man climbed over the fence Saturday and removed his clothes before approaching the lions. A note found in his clothes suggested was apparently attempting suicide.

Zoo authorities had to shoot and kill two of the lions with live rounds to protect the man. The zoo said it took the “incomprehensible action” of killing two of its three lions, which was “profoundly painful for every single one of us.”

The intruder was rushed to the hospital.
