New details in the death of a volunteer intern who was attacked by a lion.
The coroner's report is in, meanwhile the family of the victim and her coworkers continue to grieve.
The autopsy results are in...
The Fresno County Coroner's office says the presumption is that the lion managed to open the gate to the recreation area where people are usually allowed.
That's where Dianna Hanson was cleaning at the time, and that's where her body was found.
The bottom line here is that this was such a tragic loss that the victim's family and the Project Survival family continue to grieve.
The official ruling is that this was an accident, and that the victim died of a broken neck.
It was just yesterday that 26 year old Dianna Hanson was killed by one of the lions up here.
The lion, called Cous Cous was put down.
The coroner's office is working with the Department of Fish and Wildlife on the lion's necropsy.
Results of that should be done in a couple of weeks.
Project survival maintains all safety protocols were in place...
And no other information is being released on that from the Fresno Sheriff's office until their part of the investigation is complete.
The founder of project survival and the non-profit's president spoke with us just moments ago, shedding some light on just who Dianna Hanson was...
At the time, she was working here as an intern, cleaning the enclosures.
She loved her job, and staff members say she even had songs for the cats she took care of.
