CINCINNATI (ABC News) — No charges will be filed against the parents of a young boy who crawled over a barrier at the Cincinnati Zoo and fell into an enclosure with a 450-pound gorilla, Hamilton County prosecuting attorney Joseph Deters said today.
“This mother did not act in any way where she presented this child to some harm,” he said.
Video obtained by ABC News shows the gorilla dragging the small boy through the water in the enclosure on May 28. The gorilla was killed and the boy was rescued without life-threatening injuries.
