A woman trying to take a picture of a dolphin at SeaWorld in Florida with an iPad apparently got a bit too close because it snatched the device right out of her hands.
The incident took place on Sunday, August 7th and was captured on video by another park goer Kuadiel Gomez. The video shows the dolphin reaching over the side of the viewing tank at SeaWorld Orlando, where visitors can touch the dolphins. After the dolphin grabs the iPad and tosses it into the water, the woman retrieves the device and then quickly walks away.
A voice can be heard over a loudspeaker saying, "As you can see, the dolphins can reach your loose items."
"I couldn't believe what was happening right in front of me. They're usually kind of friendly and just swimming around. They go on the ledge every now and then, but that day, I don't know, they seemed like they didn't want to get petted that much or touched" Gomez told Fox13.
Gomez, who waiting to record a video of his son petting the dolphins, had noticed one of the dolphins peering up at a woman. Anticipating something to happen, he started recording immediately.
Gomez's video, since he uploaded it on Facebook has gone massively viral, and has been viewed millions of times, since it has been shared by Fox13.
