Cleveland Zoo Suing Couple Who Dangled Toddler Over Cheetah Exhibit Dropped Him

Looking for video to borrow. It seems to take a day or two after a story breaks. You may view here for now.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A woman was dangling her 2 year old son over a railing at the Cleveland Zoo when he fell about 10 feet into a cheetah exhibit, Zoo officials said.

The toddler's parents jumped in and pulled him to safety Saturday afternoon. He was treated at a hospital for a few bumps and bruises, said Cleveland Fire Department spokesman, Larry Gray.

The cheetahs didn't go toward the boy or his parents, said Chris Kuhar, executive director of Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

Several eyewitnesses saw the woman holding the child over the railing, Kuhar said in a statement. "While this incident is disturbing to everyone, we are glad injuries were not any more severe," he said.

Cleveland Metroparks plans to seek child endangering charges against the mother on Monday, he said.

A similar incident at a Pittsburgh Zoo left a 2 year old boy dead in 2012. The child was fatally mauled after falling into a wild African dogs exhibit.

The boy had lunged from his mother's grasp and fell about 10 feet from the top of a wooden railing into the enclosed exhibit below.

The boy's parents sued the Zoo, saying it had been warned about other parents who routinely lifted children onto the railing. The Zoo countersued, arguing the boy's mother was to blame for his death, because she lifted him atop the railing so he could get a better look into the exhibit.

The legal dispute was settled last year.

I hope the Zoo wins! Wild animals are called wild for a reason! Fucking drunks fucking with tigers and such! And the animal is usually killed. Take responsibility for yourselves, people!

I am of the opposite line of thinking. The nature is red in tooth and claw in my opinion.

If I ever have kids, I hope that I too can turn their tragic deaths into an opportunistic payout. It truly is the American Dream!

I don't believe you would harm an innocent baby.

Jump in, if you want a payout.

This generation and any thereafter, don't have much to hope for.

Most kill for survival and with no weapons, not for sport or entertainment, like humans.

Even birds and frogs have some cool colors.
