BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – The toddler who fell into a rhino exhibit at the Brevard Zoo on New Year’s Day suffered a lacerated liver, an injured kidney and injuries to her back, chest, abdomen, head and leg.

The new details were revealed in a 29-page report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission released to Channel 9 on Wednesday.

The zoo originally told Channel 9 the girl had suffered a small abrasion to her face.

On Jan. 1, the 21-month-old girl stumbled through steel poles separating the public space, which is at ground level, from the Rhino Encounter exhibit.

The FWC report also said investigators believe the two poles between which the toddler fell were about 8 inches apart.
