April the Giraffe’s Live Birth Drew 14 Million YouTube Views on One Day

A peak of more than 1.2 million people watched April give birth live on Saturday, April 15, at 9:55 a.m. ET on Saturday. That makes it one of the top five most-watched moments for a live event ever on Youtube. However, it was nowhere close to the most-viewed live-streaming event in YouTube’s history: That’s the Red Bull Stratos space jump by skydiver Felix Baumgartner in October 2012, which more than 8 million people watched live concurrently on YouTube. – Todd Spangler, Variety http://ift.tt/2purnnL
