A trainer fights for his life when a killer whale took him under water in a sea park.

A killer whale played with Ken Peters for eight minutes. It was during a show for people in a sea park. He was lucky because after eight minutes he got out of water. He had only some small problems with his legs.

This situation happened in 2006. People didn’t know about it before. Now, police went to the sea park and gave this information to people.


Interesting words: fight (try to hit or kill somebody), killer whale (black and white whale which eats meat).
