He broke some bones in the leap and got a bite taken out of him. My favorite part of the story is the last paragraph:
NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Saturday that 25-year-old David Villalobos told investigators that he deliberately leaped into a zoo exhibit because he wanted to ‘‘be one with the tiger.’’
The police spokesman says that when a police officer asked Villalobos why he did it, the victim [sic] responded, ‘‘Everybody in life makes choices.’’
Yes, they do.
It's interesting to me that this AP story characterizes him with the word "victim" while the perpetrator himself acknowledges his volition.
