Video from a witness shows an elephant charging a man and his two-year-old who got inside an exhibit at the San Diego Zoo.
The man bypassed multiple barriers and carried the small child into the area that houses the zoo’s Asian and African elephants. When the elephant charged them, he raced for the fence, apparently dropping the child in the process.
Sadly the man will have to turn in his "Father of the Year" trophy.
