October 10, 2014

LITTLE ROCK — Little Rock Zoo officials say a young child is recovering after falling into a jaguar exhibit.

Zoo spokeswoman Susan Altrui says staff members used a fire extinguisher to keep the jaguars from approaching the toddler after the incident Friday morning. The child was pulled to safety by a zoo employee who'd lowered a ladder into the exhibit.

Altrui says the child was conscious and responding at the time and was taken to a nearby hospital. Officials have not yet released the child's age or said how the toddler fell into the exhibit.
