SeaWorld: Whale show to resume after trainer death

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - SeaWorld says its Shamu Believe show with killer whales will resume this weekend after a whale killed its trainer at the Orlando park.

SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment President Jim Atchison says trainers won't get in the water with the killer whales for now until officials finish reviewing what happened to trainer Dawn Brancheau.

The veteran trainer was dragged into the water Wednesday by killer whale Tilikum. The medical examiner says she likely died of traumatic injuries and drowning.

Atchison says whale shows will resume Saturday at parks in Orlando and San Diego.
