    SeaWorld dolphin dies after colliding with another dolphin

    SeaWorld dolphin dies after colliding with another dolphin

    April 28, 2008


    ORLANDO - A 30-year-old female dolphin died Saturday at SeaWorld's Discovery Cove after colliding with another dolphin during an aerial stunt.

    Sharky was performing a jump for park visitors when she collided with the other mammal and died, said spokeswoman Becca Bides. Visitors who witnessed the accident were standing more than 50 feet away, Bides said.

    This was the first time dolphins fatally collided at the park, Bides said. "Even though it's rare, we're taking this very seriously."

    Bides said park officials will examine training protocols and the dolphins' aerial behaviors and routes.
