A trainer fights for his life when he is taken underwater by a killer whale in San Diego.

Ken Peters was pulled around for eight minutes during a live performance but eventually he got out of water. He escaped with some small injuries.

This situation happened in 2006 but it has been released now because there has been an investigation of safety violations at SeaWorld.


Interesting words: killer whale (black and white whale which eats meat), release (give official information to people), investigation (situation when police wants to find out why something happened), violation (breaking rules or law).
