Death At Searworld: Killer Whale's Fatal Attack On Trainer Eyewitness Interviews

Eyewitness police interviews immediately after killer whale Tilikum killed Dawn Brancheau at Sea World in Florida. Interviewed by Orange County Sheriff’s Office, February 24, 2010,

This is not part of the show. Get the kids out of here!”
--Jessica Wilder, guest at SeaWorld Florida and witness to the killing of trainer Dawn Brancheau by the orca Tilikum. Interviewed by Orange County Sheriff’s Office, February 26, 2010, 9:51 AM

Wilder was at the underwater viewing area when the incident began and was one of the few people to see Tilikum attack Brancheau beneath the surface. In this interview, she describes in gripping detail how the 12,000-pound orca repeatedly rammed Brancheau, who at one point curled up into a ball in a vain attempt to protect herself.

“I’m getting that body. I’m getting my friend.”
