PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Pittsburgh Zoo keeper got a round of applause Saturday after helping an animal that fell into a pond.

The ice apparently broke and one fell into the water.

A zookeeper was standing nearby and quickly waded into the water to help the nyala to shore.

Onlookers can be heard applauding as the nyala jumps out and scampers off to join the rest of the nyalas in the yard.

A Pittsburgh Zoo spokesperson says there were no injuries.
