Fantasy meets reality in Sea World where a KILLER WHALE (please note word KILLER) killed a veteran trainer.
ORLANDO, Fla. – A killer whale drowned a trainer in front of a horrified audience Wednesday at a SeaWorld show, with at least one witness saying the animal leaped from the water, dragged the woman under and thrashed her around violently.
Distraught audience members were hustled out of the stadium, and the park was immediately closed.
The 40-year-old veteran trainer was one of the park’s most experienced. It was not clear exactly how she died.
An audience member said a show was just starting when the whale “took off really fast in the tank, and then he came back, shot up in the air, grabbed the trainer by the waist and started thrashing around, and one of her shoes flew off,” Victoria Biniak told WKMG-TV.
But Jim Solomons of the Orlando County Sheriff’s Office, said the trainer slipped or fell into the whale’s tank, which seemed to contradict Biniak’s description.
“This appears to be an accidental death, a tragic death,” Solomons said.
What the fuck do they mean accidental death? I don’t believe there is anything accidental about a KILLER WHALE killing someone or something. I believe it is living up to it’s name.
Mother nature sure is a bitch sometimes!
