Eventually, Chacha succumbed to the sedative two hours after he made his getaway. He fell from the high poles, hitting a concrete wall on the way down. Zoo workers quickly placed him in a blanket and rushed him into a nearby van.

It was not immediately clear if the chimp survived, according to the AP.

The zoo is currently investigating how he escaped.
