Gorilla baby in Prague Zoo died during birth

Yesterday more then 250,000 people were watching online the delivery the second gorilla baby in Prague’s Zoo in Troja. At first the birth was without any complications until the gorilla mother Kamba tore her umbilical cord, which lead to the suffocation of the partly-delivered baby.

At one moment Kamba was in danger too. The Zoo had to call gynaecologist anaesthetist from a hospital to help Kamba with the delivery of the dead foetus. The medical help took one hour. Kamba is stabilized now.

Kamba, 35 years old (equivalent human age is 50) was giving birth for the first time in her life. Another hope for Prague Zoo is now gorilla Kijivu, the mother of the gorilla baby Moja, expecting her second baby in May.
