Dolphin dies after collision during an aerial stunt

In a freak accident, a dolphin died during a stunt at the famous Sea World amusement park in Orlando, Florida. During an aerial stunt, the dolphin collided with another dolphin that was also aerial, and the tragedy occurred.

A 30-year-old dolphin at Sea World has died after colliding with another dolphin while performing aerial tricks, the Orlando, Florida, amusement park said Monday.
The incident occurred about 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Discovery Cove area of the park, according to a statement by Sea World spokeswoman Becca Bides. The animals were in the center of the lagoon and not near guests, she said.

Dolphins are about the most intelligent of sea creatures, and are a great hit with people, so this makes this even more of a tragedy.
