Over the weekend, a two-year-old boy got more excitement than he bargained for on a trip to the Cleveland Metropark Zoo.

While looking at the cheetahs, the boy toppled 10-12 feet into the exhibit, injuring his leg (from the fall, not from the cheetahs) and ended up having to be transported to a local hospital. 

The Executive Director at Cleveland Metropark Zoo believes the boy was being dangled over the partition wall by his parents before he fell in. The Zoo will be filing charges against the boy's parents for child endangerment, although they probably thought they were being great parents, just trying to give their son the best possible view of the large, carnivorous cats.

Pretty sure this couple missed the memo when we all learned our lesson about baby-dangling after the Michael-Jackson-baby-on-the-balcony incident.
