Five children and two adults were hospitalized Wednesday after a large tree branch fell on guests at the San Antonio Zoo.
One of the witnesses who was visiting with her daughter said the branch fell on benches where guests were sitting.
Another guest— Chris Ryan—described the incident as chaotic, noting a lot of people were crying and in pain.
The zoo released a statement on their social media saying, “the safety of our guests, staff, and animals is always our highest priority. Our gratitude is with the guests, staff, and first responders who assisted during this incident, and our sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to those injured and their families, as well as those who witnessed this accident.”
A man in Utah was arrested after attempting to rob a bank for $1.00.
Donald Santacroce, 65, reportedly walked into a bank and gave the teller a handwritten note.
The note read, “please pardon me for doing this, but this is a robbery. Please give me $1.00. Thank you.”
Once police arrived, Santacroce demanded to be sent to federal prison.
He was arrested but released Wednesday and did not give a reason for wanting to go to federal prison.
