As many as seven people, including three children, were killed Sunday after a van in the New York city plunged off a highway into a zoo, police said.


The out-of-control van flipped off the highway and fell some 50 feet (15 metres) into the Bronx Zoo, killing all aboard the vehicle, Xinhua quoted a police spokesperson as saying.

It landed in a relatively remote section of the zoo and did not injure any other person or animal.
