Woman attacked by dolphin at Manati Park in Bavaro

When an Argentine tourist decided to  take the plunge and swim with the dolphins on her family holiday in the  Dominican Republic, she had no idea what kind of a splash it would be.

Unsuspecting  Silvana Straccia paid $100 to swim with the creatures at Bavaro Beach  in Punta Cana, wearing a bikini with a metal ring on it that irritated  the dolphins.

Moments  after she entered the enclosure, a dolphin locked on to her and whipped  her in the face with its tail before hitting her in the stomach -  sending her to the hospital with broken cartilage and requiring 8 weeks  of bed rest.
