A New Hampshire family is sharing video they shot just moments before an aggressive orca killed a Sea World trainer Wednesday. Todd and Suzanne Connell along with 10-year-old Bobby were down front at Shamu Stadium in Orlando watching 40-year-old Dawn Brancheau feed the whale named Tilikum.
Minutes later, Brancheau was dragged underwater by Tilikum. Suzanne says she tried to protect her son from seeing the trainer be thrashed about but the 10-year-old wanted to see what was going on.
"You were in horror though trying to figure out what to do and I shielded him but he got away from me because he wanted to see what was happening. I was just thankful there was no blood or anything coming up," said Suzanne.
