4 year old falls into gorilla enclosure

 

Shocking footage of the 4-year-old boy who fell into the enclosure with a Gorilla at Cincinnati Zoo

After falling in the four-year-old boy was dragged through the water by the massive silverback gorilla. Though the gorilla appeared to be attempting to shelter the boy, eventually authorities had to kill him.

“That child’s life was in danger. People who question that don’t understand you can’t take a risk with a silverback gorilla — this is a dangerous animal,” he said. “Looking back, we’d make the same decision. The child is safe.”
