According to NBC4i, a man fell into an enclosure at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium Thursday afternoon.

The zoo said at about noon, the man fell 12-15 feet off a protective handrail near the Watering Hole in the Heart of Africa section during a Cheetah Run presentation. He landed behind a safety barrier and was conscious when zoo safety teams reached him.

Across the safety barrier was Adrienne, a 3.5-year-old female cheetah, who was with her trainer in the Watering Hole. The zoo said Adrienne “took notice” of the man but stayed with her trainer and was immediately secured.
