A 4-year-old boy had fallen into the Gorilla enclosure at Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday, and was grabbed by a 17-year-old and 400 pound male gorilla, Harambe, who dragged around with the screaming boy for about 10 minutes before zoo-workers shot and killed the animal.

After the gorilla was shot with a rifle, the child was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
