Penguin jumps out of exhibit at SeaWorld



ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Witnesses started recording video when a penguin jumped out of an exhibit at SeaWorld's new attraction on Saturday, joining many guests in the viewing area.

The incident was caught on video by a guest at the new 'Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin' attraction.

According to a witness, SeaWorld staff ushered guests out of the area and surrounded the penguin while waiting for a handler. The penguin was returned to the water unharmed.

The attraction is SeaWorld's newest and opened to the public on Friday.

The witness told WFTV she was concerned for her four-year-old child's safety and thinks SeaWorld should modify the attraction so it doesn't happen again.
