    Post Dolphin leaps onto boat, injuring California woman

    The Associated Press Posted: 07/01/2015 10:41:05 AM M | Updated: about 16 hours ago
    ANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) A dolphin leaped onto a boat in Southern California, crashing into a woman and breaking both her ankles.
    Chrissie Frickman was boating with her husband and two children June 21 when a pod of dolphins swam alongside them. One of the animals jumped on the vessel, knocking Frickman over and landing on her legs.
    "The dolphin jumped and we thought it was doing a flip and I guess it miscalculated," said her husband, Dirk Frickman. "It came right onto my wife and flopped in the boat and knocked down and grazed my daughter."
    "The dolphin was flopping all over," he said. "It cut its nose and its tail. Blood started splattering everywhere."

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    I just saw that story - unbelievable! So glad that the family still cared about the dolphin, despite Chrissie's injuries. It broke both her ankles, though she didn't realize at the time.

    Rescuers managed to get the dolphin back in the water where it belongs, as well as getting Chrissie to the hospital.

    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance
