Sea World Killer Whale Attack Video Released [VIDEO]
I went to Sea World a few times when I was a kid. I never really got into it. Of course, a lot has changed with the theme park since then, I'm sure. However, the one thing I DID enjoy was the killer whale show.
And, training these gargantuan creatures is fraught with danger--something I'm sure trainer Kenneth Peters knows and, unfortunately, experienced firsthand nearly six years ago.
In November of 2006, Peters was attacked by Kasatka, the 7,000-pound whale in his charge, during a performance at Sea World in San Diego.
The video of that attack has just been released as part of the SeaWorld vs. US Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis trial. The video features no audio but shows Peters being dragged to the bottom of the pool by the whale.
He suffered a broken foot and puncture wounds.
Frightening stuff. Check it out.
