Authorities said the boy, who fell 10 to 12 feet, is expected to recover after being picked up out of the moat and dragged by the 400-pound male, lowland gorilla named Harambe.

While zoo officials are still investigating, they believe the boy crawled through a railing barrier, and then fell into the moat.
