A horrifying new video shows what happened when a small child fell into the gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo! The four-year-old came face-to-face with the giant ape, and their meeting is almost too disturbing to watch.

A trip to the Cincinnati Zoo became a fight to survive for a four-year-old boy on May 28, after he managed to sneak under the fence at the gorilla habitat, and fell into the enclosure. The little boy was greeted at the bottom by a 400 pound gorilla.

Harambe, a 17-year-old, 400-pound gorilla, carried the boy around its habitat for about 10 minutes in what the zoo's dangerous animal response team considered a life-threatening situation, Cincinnati Zoo Director Thane Maynard said at a press briefing.

After the gorilla was shot with a rifle, the child was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
