Dol­phin in boat leap

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

A DOL­PHIN leapt onto a boat in the US, crash­ing into a woman and break­ing both her an­kles. Chrissie Frick­man was boating with her hus­band and two chil­dren in south­ern Cal­i­for­nia last month when a pod of dol­phins swam along­side. One of the an­i­mals jumped onto the ves­sel, knock­ing Ms Frick­man over and land­ing on her legs, the Or­ange County Register re­ported. Her hus­band, Dirk, headed to­wards har­bour, splash­ing wa­ter on the thrash­ing 150kg dol­phin to keep it alive. The dol­phin was saved.

ROUGH RIDE: Dirk and Chrissie Frick­man.
