Whale Attack at SeaWorld Orlando
This afternoon, a female employee was killed at the start of a show at SeaWorld's Shamu Stadium in Orlando, Florida. According to eye witnesses, the employee had just explained to the audience what they were about to see in the show when all of a sudden a whale came out of the water and grabbed the employee by the waist. She was whipped around, making one of her shoes to fly off her foot. Sirens went off and the entire audience was evacuated from Shamu Stadium.The fire department was there within 5 minutes of the phone call that was made a little before 2 pm, however the employee was dead by the time they arrived. The whale's name was Tillikum, nicknamed "Tilly". Tilly drowned a trainer in 1991 in British Columbia. Our prayers are with the employees family and friends.
