It’s one of the most popular things to do when visiting Sea world in Orlando but this time it was not the best experiences for Jillian Thomas!
The 8-year-old girl was at Sea World in Orlando, Florida, last week when the hungry took a bite to her hand after feeding the playful dolphin scraps of fish.
The hand then swelled up and it was clear that the young girl was in lots of pain.
The video was filmed by her father Jamie Thomas and uploaded the film to the internet showing the video of his daughter nearly being dragged into the water by the normal friendly creature.
Telling Sentinel he said:
‘The first thing I thought was I would have to jump in water and save my daughter’s life,’
‘I literally thought she was going to be pulled into the water.’
‘Thank God it didn’t pull her in the water. It’s only a matter of time before someone gets seriously injured at this attraction,’ Thomas wrote in a message at the end of his video.
Jamie also said that he was upset by the way that Sea world staff handed the he incident, saying they trivialized the severity of it.
But this is not the first time this has happened as back in 2006 two adults pried open a dolphin’s mouth to free a 7-year-old boy from its grip, which left a bruise on the boy’s hand, according to another Sentinel article.
Sea Wold have since refused to comment on the attack.
One Direction‘s Liam Payne has taken some time out of his busy lifestyle to have a family holiday in Florida.
Liam went to Disneyland and also Seaworld where he swam with dolphins and got up and close with Shamu the big killer whale.
