Child Gets Dragged By Gorilla At Cincinnati Zoo
A Gorilla was put down today in Cincinnati after a 4-year-old boy fell into a zoo exhibit. The boy was with his mom who was tending to a group of children right before falling into stream that was a part of the gorilla’s habitat, according to WLWT. A witness said the boy kept asking his mom to “get into the water” before he fell in.
It’s been reported by WLWT Cincinnati that the boy was alert but sustained serious injuries after his attack. The zoo was unable to tranquilize the animal because it would have taken too long to set in. Instead, they had to shoot him.
Warning, the unedited video of the Gorilla dragging the boy may be too much for some. Hit the flip to see it.
