Killer Whale Attack SeaWorld Trainer

A tragic situation was witness by a crowd of visitors as they watched a trainer killed at SeaWorld when a killer whale named Tilikum grabbed her from behind and drug her into the pool.

Witnesses told the Orlando Sentinel, the 12,000-pound whale grabbed 40 year-old Dawn Brancheau by the upper arm, tossed her around in his mouth and pulled her beneath the water.

It is not the first time that Tilikum has been involved in this kind of accident. Fatal incidents happened in 1991 at Sealand of the Pacific, and in 1999 at SeaWorld Orlando.
