Twenty-seven-year-old Daniel Dukes was found dead early in the morning draped over the back of the largest Orca. The cause of death was believed to be hypothermia, and drowning. The lawsuit? The parents are saying that the theme park caused his death by portraying the large animals as safe and huggable (never mind that the man was trespassing in the first place, and nobody in their right mind jumps in a pool with two animals that are bigger than you are).
