Man who fell in zoo movie set not charged
A man who lied to get into a movie set at a Boston zoo, then fell into a fake lion's den, probably won't be charged, police say.
Arnold Milfort, 27, of Dorchester, had posed as a Boston Zoo employee to get into the set for
The Zookeeper Wednesday and fell 30 feet into a makeshift lion's den, where a net broke his fall, authorities said.
He was not identified until he arrived at the medical center. The first emergency workers who arrived at the zoo had identified him as a juvenile, fire department spokesman Steve MacDonald said.
The zoo's only lion was in another pen and there were no other animals nearby.
