Binti Jua, a western lowland gorilla female in the Brookfield Zoo, Illinois is most well known for an incident on August 16, 1996, when she was 8 years old. A three-year old boy climbed the wall around her enclosure and fell 18 ft onto concrete below, unconscious with a broken hand and vicious gash on his face. Spectators screamed, certain the gorilla would harm the child. Binti picked up the child, gave him a few pats and carried him 59 ft to an access entrance so zoo personnel could retrieve him.
