Sea World killer whale claims second victim

SeaWorld Orlando: 1 dead at SeaWorld Orlando Shamu attraction - latimes.com

The whale "Tilly" attacked a female trainer, also was blamed for drowning of a trainer at a different park in 1991 and was found with a dead guy in the tank a year later, believed to have snuck in and died of hypothermia, but also had been bitten.

Female trainer was explaining what was going to happen during the show, whale comes up and grabs her, thrashes her around, etc.

I kind of worded the title confusingly

The other victim was in 1991 in a park in British Columbia

So the Japanese from the Whale Wars episode of South Park had it right.

Sounds like that whale was into some kinky stuff.

Sold to SeaWorld as a stud in 1992, the whale was involved in a second incident when authorities discovered the body of a naked man lying across his back in July 1999.

Aparently that naked guy was in the park after hours and went swimming in the water with the KW. Man I would never do that! I have had a nightmare all my life of swimming in one of those tanks at night and a KW getting me, scary shit!

I was just there on Friday.

edit-
We know a girl who is a trainer/intern there. Here's one of her pics of the whale that killed the trainer. 12k pounds, 22.5 feet long. He's the largest whale they have there.

What part of the word KILLER is confusing? I forgive the whale, it was having a bad day.

That "kill" part that's associated with violence and death? And yeah you should kinda know what you're getting into with a killer whale.

I was thinking the same thing. If I was a killer whale this is what I'd want to do to the people holding me in that small tank.

The girl I spoke about above just said that during her orientation at SeaWorld that the trainer that died said that if you slip into this whale's tank, you won't come out alive. They're saying that she slipped and fell into the tank.

A more entertaining title would have been "Terrence Cody Kills Trainer"

Seriously though, that's tragic. RIP to the trainer
