MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - As many as 11 people, including six children, were hurt as a raised platform used to feed giraffes collapsed in Moscow’s Zoo, a source for the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“Eleven people sought medical help, seven of them were hospitalized,” the source said.
However, a spokesman for the Moscow department of the Russian emergencies ministry officially reported that ten people had sought medical help.
Meanwhile, spokeswoman for the Moscow Zoo Natalia Istratova told Itar-Tass, the accident happened because of the visitors. The bridge near an open-air cage with a giraffe was closed on Tuesday because of technical reasons. “Despite the fact that the platform was fenced off, a group of visitors stepped on it. The platform is designed to bear the weight of not more than three people, while at the moment of the accident there were about ten people there,” she said.
