I just saw a video on National Geographic "Amazing Videos" about how a gorilla saved a child.

Apparently, in the Brookfield zoo in Chicago, a boy once fell into the Gorilla enclosure. The boy was only 3 year old. Even as the rescuers tried to rescue the boy, who had fell 20 feet and become unconscious, an 8 year old female Gorilla, actually extricates the child and takes him to safe place where the zoo rescuers can be come and take him away to safety.

The Gorilla, Binti Jua, was celebrated as a hero for saving the child from other gorillas.

An amazing incident of love and care shown by an animal to a human in the times of when man does not do something similar to his brethren.
