This is real talk man this is not a lie or a joke. I work at the Central Park Zoo in the City and I’m going to talk about everything from my point of view and everything I heard.
So my day started off like any normal day, a nice afternoon as I left to go to work, my shift started at 12:30pm. So I got there 10 mins early and gotten some pizza but skip on to where things got real. ALRIGHT so now I’m asking our guest for pictures at the entrance because I’m a photographer at my job, and suddenly I heard a loud ass “CRACK” sound. So at first I didn’t know what it was until I seen people running to where the noise came from, and then I seen the security running at that same location.
So from what I heard as soon as it happen I heard that some kids were climbing a tree but then I was like no that can’t be it at all cause those trees are huge and strong and no lil kid can knock a whole tree down. So my manager went out the Zoo to see what really happen, and it appears that a “Tree Branch” fell on a mother and knocked her out. That’s what I heard at first … . but that wasn’t the full story, people said that it also fell on the baby which is only six months. And once I heard that I was like shock to a point where I was about to cry because I was seeing and feeling everything from the father’s POV.
So the cops came along with the EMP’s and Firemen, and they closed the whole Zoo down, every exit and entrance. And what trip me out was that they had two different ambulance trucks, one the baby was in and the mom in another. The one that the mother was in rushed off to the hospital with the father riding along with her. And from seeing that, and how the husband held his head like he had pain… . I feel the EMP’s told him that his child died due to the branch… But I had a chance to see how the mom looked and it was BAD!!!!! It didn’t even look like she was breathing at all, and she was covered in blood! And that was all that I seen, the Article is all over NY Times and you can also heard about it on the News and shoot it might even be on the front cover of the news papers tomorrow morning! Now seeing how dangerous my job area is, im always going to keep my eyes open.
R.I.P To the 6 month old baby
