This is soooooo scary.
A worker at the Los Angeles Zoo was dropped into a nightmare scenario when he slipped and fell into the gorilla enclosure on Thursday morning.
The employee fell at least 20 feet at around 8:30 am, suffering a possible fractured femur from the drop.
According to officials, the exhibit’s Western Lowland Gorillas were secured while the 61-year-old was rescued.
The man was hoisted up using a rope system by firefighters and strapped to a gurney before being rushed to the hospital.
The zoo was closed when the fall occurred, and they have yet to release a statement about the incident.
We’re just glad he’s okay. Watch the footage of the rescue (below):
