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.
