The Zoo is probably bound by minimum safety standards for fences around enclosures. My thinking is that provided they were in compliance, they should be ok.
For those not familiar for the enclosure, here is a video/pic of the exhibit.
The mother should have never lifted the child on the railing. There is netting below the railing that a small child can look through instead of putting him on the rail. Or at least hold the child in her arms.
Just like someone getting killed standing up on a roller coaster. Morons.
Their will probably be a lawsuit and the zoo will pay, but no how no way was it the zoo's fault.
