Few weeks ago, we were all intrigue by the event at the Cincinnati Zoo, where a little boy fell into the moat of a 400-pound gorilla. The 17 year old gorilla dragged the child through a moat for almost 10 minutes.
This action triggered off a gush of online criticism as to why the boy was not catered to by his mother at the time.
Well, the mother had three other children with her, ages 1 to 7, and had turned away for few seconds to attend to one of the boy siblings’ when the boy wondered off according to abc news. Children of that age wonder a whole lot, if left for microseconds. So why was the mother criticized so much?
The good news is:
- The boy is doing well. After treatment at a hospital, he was released that same evening of the incident.
- Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said the case didn't come close to warranting a charge of child endangerment, and he defended the mother as an attentive parent undeserving of the abuse and threats.
