The True Disney Fan would like to send their deepest condolences to the family and coworkers of the Sea World Trainer who lost their life today in Orlando.

Earlier today during the killer whale show in Sea World Orlando, as the trainer was giving the beginning talk about what the show was about, a killer whale grabbed the trainer and proceeded to thrash her about. She was pulled from the water, but could not be revived. The show is closed until further notice pending an investigation. The attack has also prompted the closing of other killer whale shows throughout the country in other Sea World parks, including San Diego. It has not been said what will happen to the whale, who was named Tilly and brought to the Orlando park from the Vancouver in 1991 for 1.5 million dollars. Both the whale and trainer were veteran showmen.

Again, we send our deepest condolences to the relatives and coworker family of the trainer. Check in with The True Disney Fan for any updates on this story.
