A 2 year old child was injured after falling into a rhino exhibit Tuesday at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Florida.

Brevard Zoo said in an emailed statement to ABC News the child fell during the “Rhino Encounter,” a “hands-on, educational experience with Brevard Zoo’s white rhinoceroses.” It also added, “During the encounter, participants and the rhinoceroses are separated by a series of steel poles, according to witnesses, the child stumbled and fell in between two of the poles and at this point, the snout of at least one of rhinoceroses made contact with the child.”
