Woman Injured By Dolphin Jumping Into Her Boat


Tourists on a Florida dolphin-watching cruise got more than their money’s worth when a 600-pound dolphin jumped onto the deck of their 24-foot boat. The dolphin mistimed its jump and wound up hitting a woman on board, spraining her ankle. The group called 911 and members of the Isles of Capri Fire and Rescue Department quickly released the uninjured animal back into the water. “He wasn’t doing anything to us. He wasn’t moving,” said Lt. Kieth Perry. “It was almost like he knew he was stuck and that he had to rely on us to get out.”
