   No matter what anybody says, there's no telling how man came into existence. But some people insist that
through evolution human beings came from apes. A recent incident seems to support such a suggestion.
    A three-year-old boy fell from a height of 18 feet into an area where gorillas2 were kept in a zoo. On  seeing this, a 150-pound gorilla1 came to his rescue. To everyone's astonishment3, it picked up the boy,cradled him in its arms and brought him to the zookeepers. While zoogoers screamed in horror, the gorilla showed maternal4 behavior and even protected the child from other gorillas. The boy survived and the gorilla was given an award. This incident had many people asking,"Could it be that humans do have a special bond with apes?" Whatever the answer may be, there's no denying the resemblance between men and monkeys.
