Keeper saves orangutan’s life
A keeper at Prague’s Troja Zoo has become the hero-of-the-day after diving into a moat to save a young orangutan from drowning. The incident happened in the Indonesian Jungle pavilion where an artificially constructed moat serves as a natural enclosure for the troupe of orangutans. Pagy, aged nine, was playing in a palm tree when a part of it broke off and he toppled into the two-meter deep moat. His keeper – a young woman – dived in and gave him first aid to bring him back to life.
