No Charges For Child’s Mother In Gorilla Incident

NBC News reports:

The mother of a toddler who fell into a Gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo won’t face criminal charges, the city’s head prosecutor said Monday. “By all accounts, this mother did not act in any way where she presented this child to some harm,” Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney Joseph Deters said in a news conference. “She had three other kids with her and turned her back. And I’ve gotten dozens if not hundreds of emails about this case, and if anyone doesn’t believe a 3-year-old can scamper off really quickly, they’ve never had kids, because they can, and they do.”
