NC Zoo: Newborn gorilla dies

Posted: Updated:

A baby gorilla at the North Carolina Zoo is dead.

Zoo officials said they're not sure why.

Zoo staff believe the baby's mother may have accidentally rolled over it in her sleep.

A staff member discovered the death during a routine check. They found the mother cradling her baby.

Two male gorillas born at the zoo last August are still there to visit.
