Gorilla gives birth via emergency C-Section at San Diego Zoo

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO - The veterinary staff at the San Diego Zoo had to perform a rare emergency C-Section on one of its gorillas. 

The zoo had several outside consultants on the 18-yr.-old gorilla’s emergency surgery, including human neonatal specialists.

The baby gorilla weighed just over 4.5 lbs. at birth.  The baby is in the vet's ICU receiving oxygen and fluids to make sure it’s okay.
