An employee of the L.A. Zoo was rescued this morning, after he fell into a gorilla habitat.
A 61-year-old man, who has not been named, fell into the enclosure at about 8:30 a.m., according to CBS Los Angeles. Crews were quickly able to secure the animals and the L.A. Fire Department (LAFD) Urban Search and Rescue team was able to lift him out of the area using a rope system to hoist him up a ladder.
He was taken to the hospital for a possible fractured femur, reports KTLA.
