SeaWorld Trainer’s Family Works to Prevent Footage of Accident from Being Released
The Brancheaus don’t want the public to be able to watch Dawn Brancheau die.
The family of SeaWorld Orlando trainer Dawn Brancheau is trying to stop video footage of the woman’s tragic death from appearing online or on television.
Brancheau, 40, passed away from multiple injuries and drowning after a 22-foot-long whale dragged her into the pool by her ponytail following a performance on February 24.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is presently in possession of the tape, and once the investigation has been completed the material would become public under Florida law.
Because Brancheau’s next of kin feels the tape would only worsen their grief, SeaWorld is working with them to “prevent the release” of the terrifying footage.
The park’s training and safety policies are under currently review according to the Orlando Sentinel. (Fox News)
