Back on February 24, 2010, Dawn Brancheau, a Seaworld Orlando trainer, was killed while she performed her “Dine with Shamu” show by the 12,300 pound killer whale.

Taylor Hubbard, at one point in time, was a Miss Teen USA pageant finalist and had plans to enter more prestigious talent events in the future.
