Dolphin Dives Into Boat, Breaks Woman’s Ankles, Punches Another In Face
Dolphins are tired of our bullshit.
The reason I love this story is mainly due to the headline, which makes it seem like the dolphins are tired of their good-guy image that's been fostered in the media, like helping injured swimmers to shore, or frolicking with kids in Disney movies. The headline implies that one just snapped, and went Ronda Rousey on a family.
And maybe that happened. But more likely it accidentally leaped into a boat and thrashed around, causing injuries.
For reasons unknown, the dolphin became separated from its pod that was swimming alongside the family’s vessel. After jumping onto the boat, the confused dolphin, weighing about 159 kilograms (350 pounds), dived into Mrs Frickman, crushing her legs. Frantically thrashing around in its unfamiliar environment, the cetacean managed to further injure itself and punched Mrs Frickman’s daughter in the face.
It happened in southern California, between Los Angeles and San Diego. And apparently the people couldn't get the dolphin out of the boat, so they headed to the harbor, all the while keeping the dolphin wet with sea water until they could release it back into the ocean, with the help of the harbor patrol.
The wife suffered two broken ankles, and the daughter bruises to her face.
